One wing isn’t even enough…

1 Jul

I have the day off. I slept late, letting my sunburn soak in some much needed aloe. When I went in for breakfast, there were reports of mackerel running so I headed down to the dock to throw a line. No luck, and then the boats started coming in. You can’t win them all.

So then we headed to swim beach, because it was a hot day and the water looked inviting. One can’t spend an entire summer in the ocean and not get in. We went swimming, somewhat reluctantly, as the water is a cutting fifty-something degrees. It was hard and icy but refreshing.

Then upon getting out of freezing water to a really warm beach, Mario went into shock. He got lightheaded, dizzy, sleepy. We got him some juice, Greg sat and made sure he was well, we fed him lunch and propped him up in the deck chairs facing the sun to warm him up and get his blood flowing. We were praying we didn’t have to call the helicopter.

Then we all saw it. Up in the sky there was a crazy color burst through the clouds that slowly took the form of Angel wings (to everyone else, to me it looked like a Cylon Raider in rainbow colors) and it grew bigger and more pronounced, then it faded and shifted off to the north. We all felt amazed by our little moment. And Mario was better. It was timed perfectly.

Pictures didn’t really capture it, but here is my lazy cell phone camera attempt to prove that it was real.
