My Morning Rainbow

I so love the morning walks with my baby girl Teli. She gets so excited each morning starting around 5:30 to 6AM. She jumps around and bugs me until I get her out the door. She stands on the corner of the bed for me to put on her harness and starts barking. I try to keep her quiet so as not to bother the neighbors but it is almost impossible. She is just so excited to go out.

This morning I decided to walk in a different direction than the normal daily walk. We turned left on Calle las Damas instead of the normal right turn. Teli was not happy and she stood her ground and would not follow me but she finally came with me.

Today is the start of the Colonial Fest 2013 (information about the Fest here) and they have many of the stands up and ready to go for the big weekend. They had an errie yellow look at 6AM in the morning.

We got to Plaza España to see what was going on there for the Festival preparations and what to our wandering eyes did appear? Snow on the tree? I had to get closer to take a look at this amazing thing.

Then I remembered about the Ballet Swan Lake they are going to be doing in the Plaza This must be a prop for the show.

So we continued our walk. I so love the Colonial Zone in the early morning hours. It is so quiet. There are not many cars in the streets. It is such a different place in the morning.

We ended up in Plaza Colón when it started to drizzle rain. The colors of the park with the lights shining on the statue of Columbus was beautiful so I stopped in the rain as Teli was running toward home and returning to let me know what she was not happy getting wet in the park.

The picture was time stamped at 7:00:31AM. I was in the right place at the right time. The next few seconds the sky changed. Right in front of my eyes a beautiful rainbow, in Spanish arco iris (I love the sound of that word in Spanish), appeared in the morning sky while the light drizzle was falling.

I was in awe. I kept snapping pictures hoping to catch what my eye was seeing. This is the Pamorama picture I took.

I made Teli come and look but she was too busy running around sniffing and trying to get me to follow her. There was a few people milling around but no one seemed to notice Gods beautiful promise creation looming over them in the sky. Even The statue of Columbus and the pigeon sitting on his head and arm seemed to take note of the rainbow. He was pointing to it as it faded away 3 minutes later.

I was content, happy and felt blessed. Teli had a nice walk. Blonde, a street dog, joined us on the way. I got to see a acro iris first thing in the morning, 7AM, in the quiet Parque Colón in front of the oldest Cathedral in the Americas. For 3 minutes the colors loomed overhead. Me with my best friend Teli and her friend Blonde. It was a wonderful start to what I hope is going to be a beautiful day.
