Seeing a rainbow is a blessing, it was sign of God’s promise for beautiful future and peaceful days ahead. Early morning today a rainbow was seen from the sky after an early light rain, kids and kids alike were excited seeing a rainbow in the sky.
A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicolored arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun. – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow
Isn’t it beautiful when the nature around you is green and there is water flowing in the river? The mountain is one of the noticeable landmarks in our barangay, at the other side of the mountain is another municipality or town. For a long time they been working for a road that will connect two towns but until now it isn’t finished.
The river is one of the source of gravel and sand in our town, they’re been quarrying for decades but it seems the gravel and sand is enormous.
I have been fascinated lately of taking pictures of the sunset whenever we go to town and went by the shore, to stop and used the internet. The connection in the shore is faster than in downtown maybe because the mobile satellite is just around the shoreline.
The shoreline is a way better than I remember, although sometimes it is quite dirty because of the dirt, woods and bamboo sticks that went ashore. Nearby the barangay hall, there are set of swings made of old wheels, it is maybe for the children in the Day Care Center but it is commonly used by students from different schools spending their break time in the shore.
The shoreline is not lonely as it looks to be because there are families taking a dip in the late afternoon, group of friends walking along the shoreline or couple dating. We usually sit in the flower box along the street where a lot of people and motorcycles passing by since there is an intersection going back to the main road.
We are in Instanbul for almost a month already, the other day we did Bosphorus boat cruise after being postponed for one day because of laziness to get up out of bed after tiring and exhausting days of sightseeing. The boat cruise was not almost materialized because it was already eight in the evening when we decided to get out and headed to the cruise port in Eminönü.
We are both in hurry, it was 5 minutes before eight o’clock when we arrived in Eminönü, after few minutes walking we found people offering boat tours for 10TL for 1 hour and 15 minutes ride, my husband want to walk more to look for Toryul company but I insisted just to ride the available tour in our front right now instead of walking and losing the last opportunity for a boat cruise.
The picture above was taken while we are still in dock and waiting for few more passengers, we left exactly at 8: 30 in the evening.
