I mean seriously I can’t make this stuff up.!! This picture taken yesterday in Playa is sheer perfection.!! An ocean view complete with a spectacular rainbow (arco iris) from one of the tables at Zenzi Beach Bar (a personal favorite I might add).!

Due to all the storm activity in the Caribbean, the sky is always a beautiful mix of azure blue, clouds, and rainbows. That’s the upside. The downside is Hurricane Matthew was in the neighborhood and is heading north. Wishing everyone in the hurricane’s path Godspeed.

It’s rainy season in Playa del Carmen right now. So along with the beautiful rainbows or arco iris, we also get some stormy weather or tormentas.! Needless to say, this weather pattern brings on some intense visuals.!! Gorgeous, but intense.!

My lovely friend P., the photographer, took this awesome shot of a rainbow this morning in Playa del Carmen.!! Or arco iris as they are called in Spanish.!

Rainbows are ever present in Playa del Carmen because it rains so much, especially this time of year. Therefore, during the rainy season, we are constantly being rewarded with beautiful rainbow sightings.! Enjoy 🙂

time-outs and rainbows…

Chicago gets snow and Playa gets rainbows. Well at least one rainbow or arco iris. Isn’t it beautiful.?!! Courtesy of my lovely friend P., the photographer.

Who, by the way, also posted the meme you see below on my FB page the other day. With the following caption – “Rose you need it too! lol” Hmmmmm…. I’m thinking she might be right 😀

at the end of a rainbow.!! It rained last week in Playa Del Carmen even though it is technically not rainy season there. But as is the case after almost every storm in playa, a rainbow or arco iris magically appeared.

I immensely enjoyed seeing the rainbows after a storm when I lived in playa. They were beautiful – the colors, the size, the majesty. I don’t see as many rainbows in Chicago, even though it does rain here frequently in fall and spring. Something about the atmospheric conditions in Playa del Carmen bring on a bounty of rainbows.

My friend P. was kind enough to take this photo of the rainbow on Monday. I thought during this winter spell, we could all enjoy the beauty and promise of a rainbow 🙂
