Skywatch Friday: cloudy sky

Last weekend, as we made our way to Elafonisi, probably about the best beach in Hania, the sky suddenly darkened.

Is it going to rain, we wondered. We do actually need it, but not necessarily today.

When we finally arrived in Elafonisi, all that remained of the clouds was this big white one.

The rain didn't come to Hania after all; it went elsewhere.

  4. Lovely puffy clouds. It's fun to watch the sky go from lots of clouds to less and less.

  9. Your Hania shots are wonderful. I particularly like the final one...all the lounge chairs and umbrellas...a barren area...with one single huge cloud rising up behind the distant mountains. Very nice. Mine is up, too. Hope you will stop by and say hello!

  15. A good sign of things to come, if we are patient enough. I can't wait to smell and feel and hear rain again.
