I don't know about 'sailor's delight, but it was certainly a delight to us! We don't often have summer showers, but tonight? Oh man! Tonight we had a summer storm that was well worth the wait!
Earlier in the evening, we had some showers. Nothing major - it rained heavily for a few minutes and then stopped, but the sky was filled with clouds. Later, as the sun began to set, the sun and the clouds together made for an absolutely AWESOME sunset!
Still later, Kevin and I were out enjoying dessert in the newly remodeled fern grotto when the lightening began to strike and thunder roiled across the sky. Oh. My. Gosh. It was amazing! There was still a bit of red in the sky and then suddenly, POP! A flash of bright, white lights. Soon afterwards, a mighty roll of thunder across the Heavens. The trees were rustling with a swift breeze and soon, another flash of light - and the thunder to follow. We watched in awe and delight for the next 15 or so minutes until the show was over.
