Can you believe, after just writing below about the spectacular skies you can see here in Italy, we stumbled on a DOUBLE RAINBOW in Sorrento?
My husband had checked the weather religiously for the last four days. Forecast: Clear and sunny. Cold. No big deal, we can do cold.
So as we set-off yesterday after breakfast with Santa, caravanning down to the Amalfi Coast with a new family who has just arrived here in Naples following us, we were commenting, once again, how checking the local weather forecast is absolutely futile.
Slick roads, drizzle, and even some heavy raining graced our swervy roads down the coast. Lamenting that we only had 1 small umbrella, we were thrilled when the parking garage attendant in our favorite spot in Sorrento eagerly handed both families huge umbrellas. (Now that's the kind of Italy I love!)
Setting out in the rain with 4 adults, 6 children, we were a big worried about the day, and E and I apologized several times. BUT, after making our way to the cliff overlooking the water, a regular stopping point, we were greeted with the biggest surprise: One complete rainbow that literally ended before our very eyes in the water below us!
I have never seen the start and finish of a rainbow, nor had it end "at our feet" like it did. After many pictures and thanks for the sign of good fortune, we realized that a SECOND rainbow had appeared, faint and light, but still TWO complete rainbows. Now that's fortuitous, and quite a sight to see.
The pictures weren't able to pick-up the second one, but here are a few of the complete rainbow we were blessed to witness yesterday in Sorrento.
End of the rainbow, the water before our feet
