There is nothing as sizzling
As a beautiful Mediterranean sunset.
Take a huge sun —
Splash on some colour and a dog —
And enjoy the tequila sunset.

Whether in the early morning,
With fog and stripes of light;
Or dressed in purple gauze
At first light;
And even winging away at sunset
On the tips of feathers —
September’s swan song is beautiful.

The first cool morning:
Autumn mist is golden
As it caresses trees
And floats over the lone dog walker.
(All photos snapped with my mobile phone.)

My daughter turned 16
At the beginning of August
And I organized all kinds of surprises.
We finished the day
With a surprise swim at sunset.
The sky turned from orange to purple:
A perfect ending to a perfect day.

I love it when the sun sets
In dramatic purple hues
Or in soft, lilac tones.
(As you can see, the little sauna house
Is now docked next to the jetty
Leaving the beach and its views free again.)
For more deep purple, please visit: Skywatch.
At the beginning of the summer,
Building started down by the lake.
It was a lovely place to sit and contemplate the sunset.
(That’s Ruby posing.)
A few days ago, I went back to the lake
And could see that the construction was now finished.
Turns out that the local caravan park
Has built a sauna for its guests
On the shore of the lake.
(Still plenty of room for Simmie to swim!)

Work is busy so I’ll only be posting once this week.
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.)
Gearing up for the last three days of work,
And then surfing in Spain.
(I won’t be around to comment on your blogs – but wish you all a lovely couple of weeks!)
This photo was taken in Ericeira, Portugal, last summer.
The Our World meme will be up and running as usual.
The long light evenings in Scandinavia
Are called white nights because it never really gets dark.
But for me, they will always be
Dazzling, honey’d golden nights,
Where the setting sun
Matches the red fur of my dogs.

This weekend, I went down to the lake
To enjoy yet another golden sunset with the dogs.
This time – we were joined by a surprise visitor: a beaver.
The beavers have been very active further around the lake,
But now they have felled trees near the beach too.
Which might explain why the beaver was so eager to visit.
The beaver swam up towards Ruby – before realizing she was a dog….
With a huge splash of its tail, it disappeared under the water.
Simmie decided he had to guard Ruby – and the floating pontoon!
The sun was still blazing in the sky at about 9.30 pm
As we watched the beaver swim away in a lake of molten gold.
