Every oak tree started out as a couple of nuts who decided to stand their ground. ~ Anonymous

Last night we enjoyed another sunset framed in the branches of one of our sand live oaks. What a peaceful evening.

The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The weather today is foggy, gray, windy and rainy. Presently, the sky has darkened and thunder is trumpeting across the bay. Thought I'd do some planting this morning, but I guess I'll have to wait until the rain stops. Looks like a good day to go swimming at The Club. Haven't been for almost 6 weeks, but the knee is feeling better and I need the exercise! There really is something nice about a dark, gloomy rainy day. It makes you slow down and want to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book. But today, we have lost our power and the sky is so overcast, it is too dark to read. Perhaps a nap?

"Peace..... is seeing a sunset, and knowing who to thank."

It's been a while since I've posted anything here. All my good intentions of making daily entries have gone the way of most good intentions. It's been pretty busy here in my life, but I've continued to photograph sunsets even though I've failed to post any of them all of these months. Some have been spectacular, some simply beautiful. But each transports me to a place of peace and introspection. Here are just a few of the lovely scenes we have enjoyed at days end.
