Rain brings rainbows!
Last Wednesday was a very busy day for me. I started out with a meeting in town in the morning, followed by another meeting and some errands. By the time I was ready to head home, I was tired, hungry, and stuck in rush-hour traffic. Off and on showers made the traffic even slower than normal.
Rather than do battle with traffic, I decided to stop and pick up a mock-chicken salad wrap from Down To Earth (if you've never tried it, you absolutely must!). That perked me up and I didn't mind the slow drive home.
As I neared my house, I saw a beautiful rainbow forming overhead. I drove to a good vantage point and pulled out my camera. This was one of the hugest, most perfect rainbows I'd ever seen. In fact, it was a double rainbow!! It was so big I couldn't get all of it in the frame! (If I'd moved, there would've been a huge ugly fence in the picture.) This is a shot looking from Makakilo towards Honolulu.
What can I say about rainbows. They come out after the rain. They make a brief, spectacular appearance. You have to be quick to catch the moment. But usually, things are always brighter after the rain. Rainbows are proof of that.
