I”ve barely left the house this week due to a family-wide stomach bug, and was beginning to think my first Beltane was going to be a bust. But just in time for May Day Eve, I started feeling better. I decided to get out and about in time for sunset and possibly be in a park under a tree when it was time for the Faeries to be about. I wanted to go to the local Botanical Gardens but they were already closed.
And then a tremendous storm started blowing in.
… I tried to get some good pictures of the incredible sunset that happened as the storm was blowing in, but missed the actual sun.
… It was absolutely majestic rolling in!
… I went to one of my favorite parks just in time for the downpour. I went here because I can park right beside the stream and not get out of the car in the rain.
It’s a Linear Park, so I drove to a few different points where I could park as close to the trail and the trees and stream as possible:
I was wondering if the Faeries come out in the rain?
The storm was short lived, and afterwards I got some great shots of nature after her shower:
Then I went back to the creekside spot, which was now bathed in moonlight:
I love this tree in particular, I’ve had lots of great times sitting beside him and meditating. All in all, a great start to my first Beltane!
Do you see any faeries in the pictures?
