Take 1, Beach Sunset

Bill and I went to the beach last night to watch the sunset here at Bullards Beach State Park. We are located just three miles from the beach, and when we left our campsite at 8:00 p.m. the sky was a little cloudy, but clear with no sign of any rain/storms…

When we arrived at the beach, just three miles away… the picture was very different. The water was very choppy, and there was a lot of fog and haze hiding the sun from our view.

Every now and then we could see a bit of an orange glow in the clouds, but the sun never really showed itself.

We watched, and watched for the magic to happen… because

I wanted to see the sun, looking like a big orange ball, set right down into the ocean just like you see in all the beautiful ocean sunset movies…

The weather chart we used said the sun was to set at 9:00 p.m. We were at the beach at 8:00 p.m.  I was ready and waiting for the breathtaking scene to take place… But, it didn’t happen last night…

When I told my bro, Danny, we were going to the beach to watch the sun set, and I was so excited that I was going to get to take pictures of it, he said “sorry for you”. Ha! Now, when he asks me if I got the pictures I wanted, I’ll just have to tell him no, but that he can keep feeling “sorry for me”… as we go out again, and again, until it happens…

Stay tuned!

    Amazing how different in just those few miles! That’s what is so wonderful about living there for two months…you have many opportunities…but we also know how time flies!! Oh, and now that I’m seeing all that driftwood it just reminds me that I’ll be scouring for spirit doll “parts” too!

      It is amazing how different the weather can be within just a couple miles.. Yes, we are trying to make the absolute most of being here, and yes, we are well aware how time flies.. Tring to fit everything in around our work schedule can be a bit of a challenge but we manage. When we get to Mt Hood and Crater Lake it will be better as we won’t be working there at all!! XoXo
