Tuesday night's walk was very peaceful...

I hope things return to normal soon for those
affected by the storm Irene .

During the Storm

Here are some images from today's outing
during the storm on the Maine coast.
When we were out it wasn't too bad.
The rain stopped in the afternoon as
the wind picked up.

I know there have been many power outages
and downed trees and too much water in the
wrong places!

Hope it was safe where you are.

Night Before the Tropical Storm Irene

The storm was still
south of us on Saturday.

By Saturday evening the ocean was rather calm
but the sky was very dramatic,
you can tell something is brewing!

Now it is Sunday morning and so far we have
rain...the wind hasn't picked up yet.
Will keep you posted!

Take care everyone!

Rain Came Today

We needed rain...

it started at the beach... and
poured on the way home almost to the point
where we couldn't see.

The vegetable garden really needed to be watered!

The violet pole beans liked it, too!

Now our concern is for hurricane Irene...
we are hearing reports she could hit Maine
on Sunday night.
We may just get too much water and wind.
We'll see and are hoping she calms down
and that everyone in her path stays safe!

The Rainbow

A beautiful rainbow covered the sky tonight
as we took a walk and it wasn't even raining!

We gazed in awe at it til it faded into the
lovely clouds.

A Sign

August 10th was a very sad day
but in the evening something special happened...
the sky was totally overcast with thick clouds,
as we drove by the ocean looking for the moon.
It was nowhere to be seen.

Suddenly the invisible moon sent a thin line of orange
moonlight through the clouds
that lit the ocean at the horizon line.
The light slowly moved towards us a little and faded away.

It was very mysterious and
perhaps it was a sign from our beloved cat, Polly
that we sadly lost that morning.
It was a comforting thought...

In My Heart

My beloved Mom is always in my heart,
missing her on this special day.
