The Sun Sets in the West ---

And I almost missed it!

My goal was to finish my walk and wind up on this pier to watch the sunset ---BY SUNSET.

But I wasn’t counting on the trees that would obscure my view, and how the sun would go down quickly behind them and I’d miss the whole thing.

There’s the pier! Can I make it?

I hurried the last half mile or so ---cutting through the hotel parking lot, around the buildings, over the grass, past the picnic tables and the shelters as the sun continued to sink lower, faster than I had thought it would.

There she goes --- the end of a very long, lovely day. I don’t know what that red splotch is on the picture…..angel kisses maybe?

Sinking lower, and almost, almost gone ----

I caught the last of the evening’s glow from the comfort of my 4th floor balcony ---Speechless. And Humbled. And Grateful for so much.

    I know what that red splotch is...a UFO, an official UFO sighting...now all you need are some string blocks to go with it and you have a UFO finished. (sorry, couldn't resist)
    The pics are lovely Bonnie, what great shots, and the after glow from your balcony is fab.
    Enjoy the sunshine.
