Bbq Sunset # Skywatch 82

In the pink


As it's persisting down (that is the polite version) with rain all week I have dug deep into the recent archives again for a warmer cheerier image. One from the "The summer of Fun" as it became known. Never ending nights of cowboy hats, beach bbq's swigging back Jack Daniels, playing with other peoples dogs, chomping on veggie burgers, meat for the carnivores and discovering, toasting custard doughnuts is not a good idea, but crabsticks surprisingly are. Above all, the company was always the best, and this tiny island provided occasionally short bursts of days when we had glorious sunsets and hot days with a gentle cool breeze. On a cold, wet, November day, I lament the passing of such days and beach bbq's. A veggie burger just doesn't taste right without a little sand in it now. Fortunately we have plenty of pubs here and the Jack Daniels is always heavily stocked up......


Which leads me to why the early post.... the pub is where you will find me tonight!

Gorgeous way to end any day and, of course, Jack Daniels never hurt the view! Love the path across the water. Beautiful shot as always, Babooshka! Know what you mean about the ongoing gray, although we have had sun for the past couple of days and fantastic blue skies, it'll end on Monday! Enjoy the weekend, drink one for me!

As much as I enjoy the beach in the summer, I do really enjoy the ocean and sand during the cooler months, I do agree everything is better when served with a wee bit of sand.

yep persisting it down here too - never mind we've got 30+ baked potatoes ordered for tomorrow and someone's making parkin - can't have fireworks but the art group have been creative so I'm told.

You captured this sunset well, Babooshka! I do hope you are having as much fun at the pub tonight as you had at the summer BBQs!

Consoling yourself, no doubt, over the loss of warm days. Drink up!

Looks a little lonely down there on that beautiful beach, but the colours in the sky are gorgeous. Worth drinking to...

Delightful archive you have to dig into! Beautiful reflection of the setting sun!

What a great sunset. I hope that you had a good time at the pub!

afanja said...

What a gorgeous shot! It makes me think of a series I shot in may 2003 of a partly eclips of the sun during sunrise above sea. The colors and the atmosphere were the same ...
Your summer of sun sounds great too. ;-)
