Post Called on Account of...Sunset?

I cannot tell a lie.  A draft of what was to be today's post is saved on the laptop, and gosh, I almost finished it.  Honest.  But here's the thing.  Hurrican Earl is threatening; we may or may not be in for a bad blow by the end of this week and sunsets preceding a storm are often spectacular.  So rather than writing, it seemed prudent to grab the camera and drive one town over to the bay where there are clear west views.  When a thundering pack of Harley riders stopped beside us and took out their camera phones, we figured we'd made the right decision. 

It didn't hurt that there was ice cream involved too.

Your pictures are truly divine! Interesting what you say about sunsets shortly before a storm...strange that catastrophe should sometimes be so ominously beautiful.

All that, and ice cream, too!

Can I, uh, bring the family up to stay with you for a weekend? I think want to vacation in your town. I promise I'd (try to) keep the kids from trashing the place. :)

I used to live on the beach in Rhode Island and I remember the "calm before the storm". Spectacular pics. Hope all goes well for you over the weekend. Stay safe.

Beautiful photos! I think sunsets are better than sunrises. I like my sleep.

Liza-- those are some of the most gorgeous pics I've seen in a LONG time. I love them. That last one is amazing.

Wait?! I'm not going to be able to do my kid's homework for them in a few years?! What am I (oh, wait, they) going to do? Thanks for coming by my blog.... I will certainly be coming back to yours!

Absolutely beautiful sunsets. Hope Hurricane Earl doesn't do too much damage, but I saw on the news it was a catagory four.
