After leaving the Grill, we noticed the clouds from a passing thunder storm. We had been watching it on the weather radar, and it showed some of it coming toward Sanibel. We didn't get any rain at all. After driving to a Sanibel Causeway island, it looked like there would be a pretty sunset because of the clouds, so we went on over to Sanibel Harbour Marriott to watch. We weren't disappointed. :) And....as we were reminded earlier, we thought once again, how lucky we are to live here.
This is not very good quality, but it is a close up view that I cropped out of one of my photos. I think it is a little rare to see a circumhorizontal arc, (which is what I think it is called), but this is the third one I've seen since living here. You can also see it in the next photo.
Very low tide
Tonight is the Full Thunder Moon or Buck Moon. Have you ever heard of that? My cousin mentioned it today on a FB post and I had to look it up.
The Full Buck Moon – July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon.
Never too old to learn something new! :)
Hope you all have a great 4th of July!
