White sand - White Clouds
The clouds were actually quite spectacular, I think they were left over from the tropical storm that came through a couple of days ago. As we were driving we went through a little shower at the same time the sun was shining. I looked out over the lake at the Gulf State Park and saw a rainbow and I actually saw the end; it went right into the water. Wish I had gotten a picture but it was so faint I don't think it would have shown up.
Here's a few more beach pictures.
I love the WHITE of the water when the wave breaks.
This was the first time we had been down since the oil spill. Not as bad as I was expecting but the beauty is still disrupted with the oil booms floating in the water, the machinery, clean up crews, and the orange plastic fencing blocking certain areas. I know all of this is necessary and I want it there for as long as needed, but it still makes me sad. I grew up going to the coast and my grandparents had a place in Gulf Shores, long before hurricane Camille hit, so it has a special place in my heart. Even when the surface looks good, I'm afraid of what is underneath!
Hope everyone had a great White Wednesday. Now go over to Faded Charm and look at all the beauty there.
Come back for a visit again soon, I've got some great finds riding around in the back of my van!! Can't wait to show you.
