I just got home from watching the solar eclipse with my parents. We live in Surfside Beach, SC, so we didn’t get complete totality like they did in Columbia or Charleston, but that didn’t matter. It was an amazing experience! We were nervous for a little while. All we heard the entire morning was thunder and there were clouds covering the entire sky up until twenty minutes before it began. Then they just parted! Everywhere around us had clouds except for where we were.

I love to write. It’s what I do for a living. My goal is always to put value into each sentence I create, something that will evoke emotions from the reader. Well, nothing brings emotions to the surface like the natural world. To watch something so beautiful, so completely beyond what words can express, is simply awesome. We are powerless when it comes to the natural world. We let it do what it wants and hope for the best. Today, we got to see some true natural beauty.

Here are some pictures of the day. I didn’t get very good photos of the actual eclipse with my phone, so no shots of that. Have a great day everyone!
