Evening



A moment ago, I was taking some pictures of a cake I just baked. It was sunset time and I couldn't resist pointing my camera towards the harbour and the sun setting. In June and July you can't see the sun set in the sea, but the rest of the year, you can see the sun set into the sea from our garden.

It always amazes me that the people living here all year, they can easily stand talking to each other with their backs towards the setting sun. I read in a book once that the old people from around here don't get the whole staring-at-the-sea-bit, it's just like looking at a glass of water..

Well, O and I stand like the angels on the beach in "City of Angels" whenever we get a glimpse of the setting sun, I love it in any form.

Åhh vad jag saknar havet, eller i alla fall närheten till det. Solnedgång över ett hav finns det något fridfullare.

I love sunsets too - and sunrises. they're just so pretty! And water is mesmerising - even a flat expanse of sea with only waves to break it up. I can't understand how people can't look at it either!
