Skywatch Friday: Rainbow Over the Ocean

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

We had beautiful weather while we were at the beach, although it did rain one day.  Even that was a good day since we could catch up on reading and even slip in a nap.  The sun came out late in the afternoon and we were treated to a rainbow reaching out over the ocean.

If you enlarge the picture and look closely to the right of the rainbow you will see a faint second rainbow.  We don’t often see double rainbows, and this is the first time I’ve gotten a picture of one.  I guess that made a few raindrops very worthwhile.

Betsy and I are going to Hendersonville this morning to see my parents.  Dad got something in the mail which has him concerned, so he wants me to see it.  I’ll try to catch up with each of you as quickly as I can.

    Absolutly georgous! I can see the second rainbow without even clicking. But I encourage people to click, just becase it’s so much more georgous made bigger. I hope you have a good trip and are able to help your dad.
