Pink Sky At Night...


My Mama used to always say "Pink sky at night, Sailors delight. Pink sky in the morning, Sailors take warning." It means that if the sunset is pink, tomorrow will be a beautiful day, but if the sunrise is pink then a storm is on the way. Tonights sunset was incredible and lasted a really long time.

Riff and I took our walk down on the riverfront tonight. We got down there just as the sun had dipped over the horizon. It was so pretty. We started out at the pier where our town herd of sea lions hang out. It was too dark to get a good picture of them, but I promise I will post one soon. They are so funny to watch and so incredibly loud!

This is a shot of an old cannery out on some pilings. It is very unstable and they have recently taken down the old boardwalk to get out to it, though it has been a very long time since anyone was allowed on the boardwalk. I thought this shot turned out really neat with the building almost black and the sunset in the distance.

May you all be blessed with beautiful evening walks...

Sunset walks are so beautiful. Your area is so unique and lovely. Have you ever watched the sunset from the tower?

Beautiful sunsets and scenery! I can just imagine the peace you must feel when doing these walks...I remember hearing that old saying about the pink skies from my grandparents and Dad. Most of the time it is true! You live in such a gorgeous place.
