We had been experiencing thunderstorms all day and were sure there would not have been much of a sunset. As luck would have it, I was suffering from camera issues due to the fact that I had dropped my camera in the sand and it would no longer take photos. So on this particular night we not only had a spectacular sunset but we also experienced a double rainbow. Because Duff, a client and friend of mine, was kind enough to send me this photo taken on his iPhone (although not very clear) I am able to share it with you. It is difficult to see the second rainbow which was less visible but there. The bottom rainbow shot across the sky from the bay side of the Island out into the Gulf of Mexico. The rainbow circled right over Anna Maria Island. As we walked and stared at this miraculous painting across the sky you couldn’t help but wonder if there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If that holds true then you would have needed a ship and diving equipment to locate it because the rainbow looked as though there was no end as it dipped its hue of colors into the Gulf. I call it a sign from nature letting me know that life is good and everything will be just fine. But then I believe the same thing when I experience dolphins or manatees. What a blessing it is to live surrounded by all the surprises of nature at it’s finest!
