The setting sun

We sat on the beach and watched during the mere minutes it took the sinking sun to disappear below the western horizon. 





The kids, sat on the laps of the three adults, 





were silent. The only sound was the water lapping on the shoreline. 





The silence was appropriate in front of the natural spectacle.


“Ahhh...,” erupted as the sun finally disappeared.





Then the search began for the first star for each of us to make a wish.





Some moments are unforgettable for several reasons.

Permit me a wee bit of envy, will ya?
Ny grands will be in PEI tomorrow for almost a week. I hope they stop to see a sunset, but they probably won’t.

Beautiful pictures. When I get to the Pearly Gates, I'm quite sure there will be a porch and a rocking chair for me to enjoy sunsets over the water.
