Sunsets

One of the nice things about living on the island is the sunsets, and we've been treated to some spectacular ones lately. Sometimes I find it difficult to just stop and be in the moment. There are just so many things to do: cook, clean, play, tend the gardens, sew... So lately I've been trying to slow down and appreciate the little things in life - like the sunsets.


This was from a walk home the other night.



This one is my favorite. I took it when my parents were here visiting and the kids and I met them down at the marina. This last one I took down at my parent's house near Petoskey, Michigan. They live out in farm country and often get pretty sunsets. The kids were in bed and it was wonderful to walk down the road just soaking in the evening - the scenery, the breeze, and the frog songs coming from the pond...

Beautiful sunset pictures!! I've often said that after living in a lakeshore community for 20 years (5 of those on the water) I STILL take pictures of the sunset. I find that the winter sunsets are more spectacular here....do you find that so far north?
