Sunset fire sans sunset......

 7:53 am - Monday - December 7th - Seal Rock, OR - 45° F, 87% humidity, wind 10 mph out of the east......clear, cold, partly cloudy skies today with a forecast high of 55° F.  On this date in 2012 we were having lunch with wonderful Amazon friends at Longhunter's Coffee and Tea Company in Greensburg, KY.......↴

Left to right: TLE, Jim, Sharon, Pat, and Richard....I'm taking the picture

Sunday was clear, and dry after rain most of the night.  I worked my usual 2 hour shift spending the entire time painting gray electrical conduit on the side of the office the same color as the office (brown), so it would blend in, and not stand out so much.  I was home a little after 12 pm, as usual.

I convinced TLE (who was called off work due to a very unbusy Sunday in the office) to take a walk down on the beach.  The tide was nearing its zenith when we arrived at Seal Rock Beach...


Something new on the beach....



The tide is rising!

.....to me it is always magical down there, and I can sit for a long time staring at the waves breaking over the rocks one by one with ever increasing ferocity, and that is what we did....we found a large tree trunk upon which to sit and watched as each wave crept closer and closer to our position......



.....we were home by 3 pm, and within minutes I had put some dry wood in the portable firepit for an evening fire, and possibly a sunset, but a slow moving front was moving in obscuring the horizon.....

See that dark line across the middle of the picture....that is the cloud front moving ever closer...it almost looks like a tidal wave, right?

.....nonetheless, we had a nice sunset fire, even if there was no visible sunset on this evening....


......we were back inside a little after 5 pm as darkness overcame the light of the day once again.
