Skywatch Friday: Surf City Slipping into the Night

IMG 2047

When I was on Topsail Island a few weeks ago, I made my way to Surf City to watch the sun slip away. The boardwalk over the marsh and around the boat launch and out to the fishing pier made for some peaceful evenings. (Straight out of the camera. I am too dumb to know how to edit.)

    The sun twinkles a soft 'goodnight' through the tree, gently and softly tucking the world in and bidding pleasant dreams.
