Chasing Rainbows

These two pictures sum up my day.  It started with chasing rainbows for three hours on the journey to see my elderly father.  He lives alone, is getting very frail but his mind is still agile and he refuses to move closer to me.  So every couple of weeks we spend Sundays making the 6 hour (when the roads are clear) round trip to see him.  He doesn’t really like his routine being disturbed and after about an hour he has had enough and so we say goodbye.  By the time we left today the predicted stormy weather had arrived so the journey home was long, wet and windy.

I’m very thankful to be safely home again.
