Sunset Scoping


Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and for those of you who are enjoying the extra day off today, hope you're having a wonderful time!

Well here I am on vacation so I thought it would be appropriate to share with you one of my favorite vacation pastimes. Sunset watching! Usually that's one of the only things I have on my to-do list. Well that and a cocktail and a dip in the ocean :)

Throughout the day I watch the sky and wonder what type of a sunset it will be. Pink, orange, red? Are there clouds in the sky and if so how high are they? Will the sun sink into the sea or some low laying clouds? The whole things fascinates me. I get very snap happy around that time of day and I end up taking a ton of photos of them. Seriously it can get a little out of hand...like we're talking hundreds of photos for one sunset. Can you say manic? The funny thing though is although it may seem manic, it's really the most peaceful time of the day. And that's what being on vacation is all about, isn't it?

Hopefully I'm getting some good ones now here in Bermuda that I'll be able to share with you when I get back.


So I'm curious about you all. Are you sunset watchers like me? I kinda think I'm not in the minority here :)

There is something about a sunset on the water that is way more beautiful then any other sunset?? Do you agree?? Anyways so at the cottage or my mom's house [which are both on lakes] it's a ritual to sit out and judge the sunset but when I'm in the city it's just not the same? Anyways I'm heading home this Saturday for a week, so I'm looking forward to lots of sunsets myself!

I'm such a sun-set watchers. I love everything about it. The color of the sun, the sound of the waves, the sea, the soft feel of the white sands on your feet. It's just perfectly beautiful.

I've always been wanting to watch sunrise though. But I'm not an early riser. I always miss it :p

Have a wonderful holiday, Dawn darling. Hope you're having lots and lots of fun!

Hi Dawn! I'm back. So great that you're on vacation, I'm so happy for you! We went to Bermuda a few years ago, when LP was 8 months old. It was our first "real" trip as a family, and we absolutely loved the place. And the sunsets! ;-)
