So we set off on our adventure. The forecast had mention of rain, but it's so scattered here it usually doesn't amount to much.
Only this time it did. Less than an hour down the road we ran into this....
Thunder. Lightening. And rain so hard we could barely follow the lines ahead of us. That nasty thing called disappointment set in.
We saw a turn off for a historic site, so we followed the signs.
And found ourselves here. It was too soggy for hiking, but it was an amazing wrap around porch. Beautiful views.
Nothing grand or earth shattering.
But simple. And comforting. And the perfect way to watch the rain trickling down.
It reminded me of our futile attempt to find a lighthouse that landed us on Pawley's Island- the unexpected gift filled with treasures galore.
Life doesn't always work out like we plan. Sometimes it turns out better. It's all in our perspective.
I am taking a little break to spend some much needed time with the family and will not be hosting a fall challenge, but if you love the seasonal challenges... Kristi of Live and Love out Loud and Rebecca of Bumbles and Light are still hosting and have some fabulous things in store for you! You can find all the details here.
