Skywatch Friday: Good Night, Topsail

IMG 8744

On our last night on Topsail. a storm came that ran the length of the island and sat heavily over us. There was a lot less cloud of the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic. Not much came of it beyond a little noise and early darkness. A drama queen of a storm.

  9. Regardless of the storm, your photo is dramatic and powerful -- actually, I'm glad it is your photo that's powerful and that the storm was harmless! Lots safer that way!

    Have a great weekend!
