Just another average sunset in paradise!

Mother Nature welcomes me to the house

It rained almost all day Saturday and I really enjoyed it.  The house roof has only two small leaks; I wish I could say the same for Dod.  He had a major leak but nothing that a tarp won't fix.

It stopped raining just before sunset and neighbor Bill yelled up asking if I had seen the rainbow.  I hadn't but a quick walk to the back yard revealed a very rare double rainbow.

As usual, a picture may be worth 1000 words but it can't capture the true beauty.  The rainbow was so large and so close that I couldn't fit the whole thing in one picture.  I need to investigate the panorama program that Tioga George uses to tie photos together.

When the sun finally came out, it lit up the vegetation with great results.

  1. Gorgeous pictures. Hope you get Dods fixed before the rain does permanent damage. Mold and mildew aren't good either.


  2. Love the photos! Looks like you are enjoying yourself. Hope you can get Dod's leak patched up without to much effort.


  3. Beautiful sunsets and the rainbow is spectacular. Hope you get Dod's roof fixed.

  4. Great pictures - I saw my first double rainbow in Quartzsite, and you're right, you just can do them justice in a photo. Your sunsets are beautiful!

  5. Whoops - I meant that you just CAN'T do them justice in a photo. :)

  6. Gorgeous pics....I'm so envious now lol

  7. Wow and double wow! Just beautiful.
