Strawberry sizzle

Sometimes, the best part of a sunset

Is when the sun sinks below the horizon.

Then all sorts of magic can happen:

A strawberry sizzle in the sky

Or the rich perfection

Of sky kissing waves at the beach.

(I’m on my last week of holiday and want to spend as much time away from the computer as possible, so may not be around too much.)

  4. July gave us some of the best sunsets I have seen all year here at home in the mountains of Virginia USA. Your ocean sunsets simply light up the sky! Gorgeous.

  25. I love your strawberry confection. In Florida the sun sets soon and quickly, even in summer. However, in British Columbia where we are vacationing now, the sun kisses the earth softly, sweetly. Yesterday windows in the skyscrapers of Vancouver were winking gold in the sunset.
