The Omen

I took the rainbow I saw this morning as a good omen and took off swimming in that direction.

BIG Mistake! I was soon surrounded by what appeared to be river rapids - a nasty swift current - and I was being swept out to sea. I panicked. And I swam. As the shore grew farther, rather than nearer, I panicked some more. But I kept on swimming, and swimming and swimming and swimming.

Somehow I broke the current's grip and approached shore little by very little. An hour later I had finally relaxed enough to take a photo of this Venus' Belt below. A bit later I pulled myself up on the beach and kissed the sand.

At least I got a good workout today.


  1. omg Don! omg!... incredible pic of the Venus Belt! Im glad u could kiss the sand!

  2. Oye! Be careful friend.

  3. Glad you have the endurance to do that. Another reason you should always have a swim buddy. :)
