Calm before the storm

Jan 21, 2021Lifestyle, Photo Diaries

Just like my last post… photos from February 2020.

This was the calm before the storm… but the storm never came. Thank God!

We enjoyed a really pretty sunset. We had a couple more cyclone scares right after this, but so grateful they passed without incidence.
