After days of rain and gray skies, Mother Nature treated us to this incredible sunrise. I took the photo from right outside my shop on the River Walk. The yellowish lights on the left (you may have to click to enlarge it) are the lights of the Maritime Museum. The white lights to the right are headlights on Marine Drive. The orange spot in front is reflected sky in a rain puddle. We usually get some stunning skies in January and February, and I was beginning to wonder if they'd happen at all this year.
I received e-mail about yesterday's post from Karen Schultz, who grew up in that neighborhood. I thought the amusing story and the history would be a wonderful addition to this blog so, with her permission, I've added it to the text. Go ahead and check it out! I'll have more stories from Karen in upcoming editions. I was going to post one today, but the sun rose and I coudn't resist today's colorful image.
