A Hint Of Magic...

Once a month or so, we take ourselves and our old Taurus wagon on a shopping trip to the nearest major metropolis(?), which is the Astoria, Oregon area to stock up on food and other necessaries.  It can be a long day, as the shops we hit are far and wide.  Some small shops in town and some 'big box' stores outside town in the new shopping areas.
It is not unusual to have grey, damp weather testing the wipers on the car (don't get me wrong, this truly IS a lovely place to live, and the sun DOES come out often).  Once in a while the sun does a miraculous thing, here at the mouth of the Columbia River and we are fortunate enough to capture it:
