Double Rainbows – Bath, England

Double RainbowDouble Rainbow

On a country walk recently it began to rain for a bit on our way back home. With our rain jackets and wellies we did not let a little rain spoil what had already been a wonderful afternoon in the English countryside. Upon entering our town we were greeted with an amazing site of a double rainbow. I have not seen rainbows like this, so vibrant and beautiful, since we were living on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.  I loved photographing rainbows when we were living the island life.  Since my father’s death in 2008,  seeing a rainbow has always reminded me of him and his Aloha spirit. He had been on my mind so much during our walk and in my family’s conversation that day.  As a Third Culture Kid (TCK) in our expat life, feeling so connected to my dad in the country where my life all began feels like the closest thing to ‘home’ that I can describe.  The previous rainbows that we have seen in England in the past year have been on our 10th Anniversary Vow Renewal in Wales and when we returned to Bath with my mum after our summer travels in August.  In a way I feel like he is watching over us.

Double Rainbow

 From my Ohana to yours,
may this week be filled with wonderful reminders
of just how wonderful and beautiful life is around you.

Q: Have you ever seen a double rainbow? Do you connect on a personal level with them too?

    This is so touching – I am sure it is your Dad being a part of your life and watching over you. I have too seen double rainbows (only twice in my life) and they are wonderful – what a lovely connection to your memories.

    Yep I think I saw a triple rainbow a couple of months ago. My iPhone didn’t capture the image though.

    Beautiful thought that it’s your Father watching over you. I have never seen a double rainbow. Look’s very pretty.

    Beautiful!! I posted an amazing rainbow last Friday on my IG with the Koolaus in the background in Nu’uanu!!

    These pictures are beautiful! I see double rainbows quite often, actually. I’m not sure if that’s because I live in London and it rains pretty much all the time, or if I’m just lucky! ;o)

    A let out a little sigh of jealousy when you said “country walk”. How I miss those!

    That double rainbow is so beautiful! I’ve never seen a double before, but they always remind me of grace and love and hope.

    The first time I ever saw a double rainbow was this past autumn while driving through the mountains in Montana. I freaked OUT& rolled down the window screaming about how it was so beautiful…There is something about them that I can’t necessarily explain–other than it reminds me that there is so much more to this life than what we can ordinarily see.
