Sometimes the Storms Come

Palm Tree against the Gathering Storm in Stuart, FL
I love Florida for the heat and the sunshine. It is in the storms, though, that I realize how much I really do love the sunshine. Yesterday as we were shopping in the quaint downtown district of Stuart the day went from bright and sunny to dark and stormy.

We had enjoyed a good snorkeling morning on the beach in Jupiter with sun and pleasant skies and decided to spend the afternoon re-exploring a town we had visited a few years ago during a previous trip.

During our excursion, the day changed from bright and sunny to dark and stormy. At least the storms provided some really cool images. I especially love palm trees against a dark stormy sky background.

Walking over to the inter coastal waterway, I was able to see the storm in more completeness. It looked ferocious and foreboding.

I tried to get some images of the lightening associated with the storm, but it seemed to be flashing in the places that I wasn't looking. It was an impressive storm gathering across the waterway.

It was a complete turn around from the idyllic morning on the beach, but I found beauty in the storm.
