The thank-you dinner and the Rainbow
This first photo shows some of the people who were there, enjoying conversations with each other:
Here are a few more of those who attended. Anyone who has been at previous sessions will probably recognize at least some of the folks in these photos:
Gaylord is shown here in the green shirt, talking with instructors Joe & Vicki Kieva & someone with his back to the camera:
Gaylord has a beautiful home on acreage but he is selling it soon to move to a home that is less labor intensive to keep up. I can't blame him. The pond and acres of lawn as well as the gardens are beautiful but very labor intensive. Here is a view of a part the house:
You can imagine sitting on the deck shown in the above photo or inside looking out the picture windows and seeing this view of part of the lawn and the pond:
We had some light rain about the time dinner was ready. It wasn't enough rain to cause a problem with the party but it did create a beautiful rainbow, in fact it was a double one as you will see in this photo. This view is from near the edge of the pond, looking over the dock toward the rainbow:
This is a broader view of the pond and shows more of the rainbow. It was beautiful but lasted only a few minutes. I sure am glad that I thought to take my Nikon camera along on this outing:
Today is the last full day of classes. I have stayed home from them this morning in order to get these photos edited, uploaded to Flickr and this post made, but I'll be in class this afternoon. Tonight is the play at Hartung Theatre here on campus. I won't be able to take photos there probably but I'll let you know tomorrow how I liked it. Huggy is currently sleeping in her basket on the RV dashboard.
Have a good time tonight, and pet Huggy for me. :-)
Drive safely when you take off again, Dick. ;-)
Take care, Meow
Amazing photos of the rainbow. I love the dark of the clouds and the spots of bright light breaking thru. Absolutely stunning. Great job.
and we have to lock ourselves away for at least half of the day. Where do you go next?
I'm really enjoying your blog.
