I talk myself out of going out for the sunrise lately. Sunset too since it’s fairly late these days. This morning I decided I would go out, but by the time I got out of the shower (it had been a while) and ready to go, with barely enough time to get there, I remembered that I had to get gas or I wouldn’t make it to Aripeka. So decided to check on One-Foot Fred tomorrow and poured another cup of coffee instead.
That’s what makes the trip out back for the sunset such a lucky break for me. I did the same thing last night, but with 20 minutes to go I grabbed my phone, jumped in the car, and zipped to the lake at the back of the park. Which is when the car started yelling at me to get gas. But I made it in time to see the sunset, the reflection of the sky in the water, and the ripples. I loved the zigzag-y reflection of the palm trees with the ripples. I guess you don’t really need a fancy location when Mother Nature is in charge of the show.
