Late yesterday afternoon, a light rain was falling in Allendale, and I needed to chill for a few minutes.
So I grabbed my point-and-shoot digital camera and went out to the point, hoping to catch an egret, maybe, or a green-wing teal.
Instead, greeting me as a I surveyed the horizon, was a beautiful rainbow. In fact, when I looked more closely, there were two rainbows.
In the photo above, if you look closely, you should be able to see the second rainbow.
As I stood there, slightly awed by the whole thing, a couple I had never met before arrived at the stand.
I pointed out the double rainbow, and the couple replied: "We get them all the time in Britain. Very damp over there, you know."
They didn't mean to rain on my rainbow. I guess everything is a matter of perspective.
If you've traveled to anywhere that has some wide open spaces, the Celery Farm is by comparison a mere vestpocket park.
But for my wife and me -- and a lot of people we know -- it will always be the pot of gold at rainbow's end.
