It’s been a rough few weeks in our home, so yesterday we headed for Siesta Key Beach for some fun in the sun. The day was gorgeous with big fluffy white clouds in a crystal blue backdrop. It was hot, but the nice breeze coming in off of the ocean made it just lovely. I was taken by all of the colorful umbrellas dotting the shoreline. Children played happily in the sand. The smell of coconut suntan lotion filled the air. This was paradise! Within 10 minutes of our arrival, it suddenly got dark. The wind picked up and out of nowhere the heavens opened up! The lifeguards were blowing horns, the rain was stinging our eyes and the wind was blowing miscellaneous bits of Summer everywhere. The sea of humanity running for their lives was unbelievable. There was no way to take a photo at that point as it was sheer chaos. And the rain was heavy. Lightening crackled everywhere. This was seriously dangerous and we ran too! Below is a quick snap I took right before the deluge. A 5 minute wait in the car and it was a return to the picture you see above…..ahhhh Florida in the Summertime!
