Chasing Sunsets and Rainbows

The three of us had lunch at a delightful restaurant in Bar Harbor, my daughter, her daughter and myself. Afterwards we spent a leisurely evening strolling through the stores, finding small treasures as reminders of our day together. As we were leaving, shimmers of color caught my eye. 
"Turn right." I spouted. 
There was a rainbow radiating like northern lights behind the sailboat. We stopped and hopped out for a few photos.

On the drive back, we could see the sun would soon be setting so we drove down to Hadley Point beach for a closer look. It wasn't quite time for sunset, but beautiful light on the water.

Deciding we didn't want to wait for the sunset, we continued our departure, but a little drive up the road, the sky had turned golden. Cars pulled over to view this extravagant beauty.

In her photography course, Amber's professor taught her to always look above her and behind, because some of her best photos may lie there. She turned around to behold a full rainbow, our second of the day.

If you look closely, you can see the outline of a double rainbow. What are the chances? Rainbows have always symbolized hope and change for me at the end of a long struggle. 

Three rainbows! Who can miss that message? 
They were chasing us down today.
