'Magical After the Rain'

Ketchikan, Alaska - Wow, Sunday was such a marvelous experience.  It rained the whole day, but then it stopped and the sun came out.  I decided to go for a walk.  While I was walking it started to rain and hail, but this time the sun was shining brightly and I saw a double rainbow.  I walked to the bridge across from Creek Street and I saw 5-6 seals.  I also saw a blue heron.  It was so magical seeing so much wildlife after a rain and while a rainbow was out.
