After sunset in Sunset Beach

Evening sky in Sunset Beach, North Carolina. December 20, 2010.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

When Betsy and I visit the beach in May, there is always daylight when we go to dinner and even afterward.  Things were much different in December.  The sun had already set one evening as we were going to dinner, but the glow in the sky and the reflection in the water caught my eye as we drove through Sunset Beach, North Carolina.  On that evening, at least, the name of the beach was very appropriate.

    George, I can always count on you for a breathtaking sunset somewhere up in the mountains.

    I pray your parents will be guided do the right thing both for themselves and family, George.
