Bright Lights, Puffy Clouds And A Rainbow...Far Out Man!
Oh, I was on a small day trip, but not one that would conjur up the image of the sixties and Timothy Leary. Yesterday we were having a nasty rainy day here in the Portland area and I picked up my clients and went for a nice drive to go see a home towards the coast about an hour and a half dive away. Now, I don't normally do this, but these are past clients and fun to boot..so not a hardship.
On the way home the rain was really coming down hard enough where most drivers were going a slow 40 mph on highway 26 and even my range rover (ok, borrowed hubby's car) was hydroplaning After driving for well over an hour and a bit wet from walking the property in the rain, I was looking to get home and have a nice cup of coffee.
Suddenly, as we were approaching downtown Portland, there were puffy clouds and a sunbeam was shining brightly through them. This gorgeous rainbow just seemed to appear out of nowhere to brighten up the dismal rainy day. Bright Lights, Puffy Clouds And A Rainbow...Far Out Man!
Now, I was still driving and taking in this beautiful site when a text came through on my phone from my hubby who had taken the picture for me from our floating home on the Columbia River knowing I would love it! You might have heard that it can rain in Portland in the winter, but typically there are peeks of sun that do happen during the day and when this happens, it's lovely and well appreciated! Hey..it could be worse and be snow!
