It is unusual here to get a stretch of rainy, windy days on the Island. However, this past week proved the exception. Wind so strong it pushed our car around the road, and rain that slammed into the windshield if we dared go outside. Memories of New England n'or easters! But, every bit of weather has its beauty. I was fortunate enough to capture this photo of one of our verandah windows. The drippings of rain painted their own watercolor in partnership with the light.

I would add that there are a hundred ways to enjoy the beauty of the Island
The weather did not deter the Island's 50th Shrimp Festival. Saturday was close to a wash out, yet people found the spaces between the raindrops and some of the artist's did very well. This Festival is one of the largest in Florida and usually draws over 50,000 visitors.
Sunday was a glorious day and the attendance boomed.
