Following The Rainbow

  Autumn has arrived.  There has been some  gentle changes here on our little Island, the hours of light are getting shorter, a few minutes shorter each day.  The weather is certainly Autumnal, windy and showers.  Changeable, blue skies and shadows one minute, overcast dark skies the next with outbursts of rain.  In between times the most beautiful rainbows, if only I could find that pot of gold.  I saw multiple rainbows this weekend, here one moment gone the next.  So it was in between showers that we headed out to the port to take a stroll along the harbour wall.




The ever changing skies and seas, a beautiful sight to behold.  The crashing waves on the rocks flooding every crevice with salt water and then rolling backwards into another wave.




A stroll along the wall listening to the crashing waves and ever pounding rhythm of the tide.





Back into the car and a few minutes later we sat and admired the beauty of the colourful rainbow, a true feast for the eyes.




Another chorus of crashing waves and then a pool of foam as the constant thrashing of the sea hits the rocks.





Back home, just in time for tea and another downpour of rain.  Yes, another rainbow...


The vibrant colours of the rainbow against the grey clouds brightening my day.

See you soon.

  3. I love sunny autumn days with blue skies but a rainbow goes a long way to brightening up a dull, grey sky.

  5. Your photos are amazing! Thank you for sharing them with us. We love the sea also but live an 8 hour driveaway. It has been several years since we saw the ocean and both Dennis and I miss it. Thank you for taking us there through your photos.
    Blessings, Betsy

  7. Ahhhh Thank you for a trip to the sea, Lorraine. I had a lovely time and enjoyed the crashing waves and rainbows, too! xx

  8. It seems that pot of gold might be deep in the sea. I suppose the crashing waves continually wear away at the rocky coast. It is all so beautiful, but frightening at the same time.

  9. So much sky! And lovely rainbow photographs. Oh, for that pot of gold. I only discovered yesterday that one of Lily's favourite TV shows was filmed on Lewis. You are so fortunate to live where you do, it's beautiful. X

  16. What a wonderful walk, I really do miss having a walk along the beach, no beaches here I'm afraid. I hope you found your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

  20. The sea is infinitely beautiful and interesting. You've captured it well in your words and photos. Rainbows, and rain showers and tea all sound like a great mix for an autumn day.

  22. I enjoyed your rainbow and wave photos! I enjoy the ocean too and was glad to be there the other week. It's warmer this week but cool evenings. This eve after work I spent time going to favorite store and found 3 long sleeved tops that will work great fall and winter...layer time and a short sleeve sweater for layering. Hope to have some rain again soon here in our part of Oregon. Glad you and Gerard had a good day out! Take care my friend!

  28. I meant to reply to the comment you left on my blog: I love it, too! Canning our food is new to us. We started three summers ago with only tomatoes and it has grown into a winter pantry filled with all kinds of goodies from the garden. It should save us a little as well as help us eat better and heather, now that we are retired and need to be fugal.
    Keep Smiling!
