This morning Rafael and I were up before sunrise. We went out for a walk and saw the sun come up over the sea..
The windfarm being built out to sea (the largest in Europe) was lit up in a golden glow;
Soon, ink black clouds were gathering right overhead and we feared we might be walking into a downpour!
Luckily we were walking into the (cold!) NE wind and the nastiness was soon behind us;
There is a silver lining to the rain clouds... without them you would not get such a spectacular lightshow!
In no time we arrived at the next town, Broadstairs;
I love the way the sea leaves wavy patterns in the sand when the tide goes out..
and Rafael is just happy when he can go in the water... (is that a wave...? ruuuun......!!)
Then .. just as it seemed all blue skies and white clouds....
we got surprised by a very small squall and a lovely rainbow which appeared over the cliffs..
It reminded me that after any dark clouds you encounter, beautiful weather is bound to lie ahead.... ( a peak over the sea to Dover)
And what do you find at the end of the rainbow?
It seems to be the ramsgate ferry.... or isn't it ?......
I am so privileged to be able to experience this, it is absolutely magical and I wanted to share it with you. I hope you enjoyed it too.
