Sunset Beach sunset…

By this time you would think that I would have been to a place called Sunset Beach for the sunset before, but I hadn’t.  Looking at the map I thought it would have a decent view to the east, which isn’t easy to come by here, so I had been there for the sunrise a time or two.  But Sunday night after dinner with my son and family I headed the short distance to the beach before I headed home.

These photos are basically in order.  Don’t ask me to explain why the houses facing the sunset seemed to be in the spotlight, but they were.  Plus lots of wading birds.  I walked to a covered pavilion to stand up a little higher and see what I could see, and I basically got rooted to the spot.  In one direction I could keep an eye on the sunset as it developed, plus the little sailboat which continued to criss-cross the view the entire time I was there, and in the other direction was a volley ball game which had me hoping for action shots.  Mostly I got shots of the players standing and looking up at the ball in the air, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. 06-21-20sunsetegrets06-21-20volleyball06-21-20volleyball3206-21-20sailboat206-21-20sailboat106-21-20sailboat306-21-20sunsetclose06-21-20lastsail06-21-20fisherboy

Lastly the fisher-boy as the color faded, and the sailboat still sailed…
