Looking east
 the sun setting over my shoulder 
 gulls came to rest on the beach
twilight beginning.

Beautiful, in the words and the picture.

Sky watch is more amazing if it is in relation to the ocean.

Wonderful seaside photo. Sometimes I miss the Long Island beaches, and the difference between the North Shore and South Shore beaches.

Hi! What a beautiful place to walk and wonder.
When I have visited beaches along this coast, I have enjoyed seeing the osprey there. It's wonderful when I can see them nesting along the shore.

I hope you have a happy Sunday!
