The End of the Rainbow

On the afternoon of March 17, (yes, St. Patrick's Day), we experienced a pop-up rainstorm.  The sun was shining brightly and I thought I would look for a rainbow.  Usually, they show up high in the sky, but as I looked outside, I thought I saw one in our back yard.  I quickly snapped this photo from inside the breakfast room.

As I stepped outside onto the deck, it got brighter and brighter.

I'm not sure that you can see it here, but our across-the-lake neighbors have two gold colored Adirondack chairs on their dock, and the rainbow ended just at the chairs!

It looked like the chairs were the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

What an incredible sight this was!

I kept snapping pictures as it faded, because I never want to forget this beautiful gift.

  7. Lucky you catching this sight~ it's better than finding a 4-leaf clover! Are you sure that isn't a pot of gold cleverly disguised as gold chairs? :)

  8. I just showed this pic to the boys. Owen was in awe. Teddy said "it's chairs. I paddled over there and saw them seriously, it's chairs".
