A sunset and a sailboat

It’s a beautiful thing to watch the sunset on the beach.   The sound of the waves, the breeze in my hair, and sand on my toes make it real.

The sunset from the beach.

The sunset becomes even more appealing when a sailboat floats into our seascape.  

Before you know it,  cameras pop up in the air with beach-goers snapping pictures of the boat sailing through the remains of the sunset.  This included myself as well.

Then you think about being on that sailboat.  That would be different than standing on the beach.

Imagine…. Sitting on a sailboat on the gulf as the sun sinks below the horizon.  There is nothing blocking your view.  You feel the breeze in your hair, mists on your face, and you’re going to where the wind in the sails takes you. 

Sounds pretty nice to me.  

To be honest, I fell in love with sailing after my first sunset cruise.  Luckily, I see more sunsets on a sailboat nowadays.

Viewing the sunset from the beach is one of the best places to watch the sunset.  But being on a sailboat ranks even higher on my list of places to watch sunsets.

Hmm. Maybe I should make a list.
