Skywatch Friday :

I found a rainbow for Nicole ...

Hubby and I had glorious weather while holidaying in Ireland recently so much so that this was the only rainbow we saw ....
... and I had to capture it for Nicole (our DIL) who was, at the time, very ill. She needed a little bit of luck - and lots of praying - to get her well again and she asked me 'kiss the Blarney Stone' and 'find the pot 'o gold at the end of a rainbow'.

We kissed the Blarney Stone (although now I know it's for 'eloquence' but we'll throw in luck here too!) ... and then we found the rainbow at Dungarvan, Co. Waterford while photographing the beautiful port with it's sculpture of a Viking ship's bow ..

Sorry ... Nicole ... just couldn't find that lil' pot 'o gold !!!! Searched .... and searched .... and searched ....
.. and by the way, she is well on the way to recovery !!
