I made friends with a wonderful lady that has three adult handicapped children. I called her and said lets go to the beach and let the children play in the water. So we went down about 5:30pm and we all got in the water. While the kids were being kids, I saw the sun starting to fade away leaving all the yellows and pinks in the clouds as it went down. I turned to my ladyfriend and said look at that sunset. Here we were sitting in the ocean watching a gorgeous sunset. It was so serene and peaceful.

Hi, A sunset as you describe not only fills me with awe at the beauty of nature with the astounding colours but it always gives me a sense of calm as well as joy. It's like a gift, a reward, for getting through a hard day, or else it's the perfect ending to a great day. You've also reminded me that on a very hot night in summer when I was young, around 8 or 10, our family would often pile in the car after dinner and the dishes were done and go to the beach for a swim and a paddle. My Dad would not go near the water but Mum loved to paddle and us kids took full advantage of this huge treat. The breeze off the water was deliciously cool and we would all go home again, refreshed but tired and then it would be bedtime.

WE did that with our children every fathers day weekend we would go to Meramac Caverns and hotel and the kids got to play in the clear water all day. Thanks for your memories they sound lovely.

I love doing it... but I couldn't do it no more! sigh... Before I left my country (Philippines) I used to watch the sunset as well as sunrise but I the place where I am now, I really don't know where the sunset is as well as the sunrise. What I know is just it is already dark and it is already day time.

Jazel being surrounded by nothing but the sea, and watch the sunrises and sets. It reemphasizes Our beloved God is in his Magisty.

I hope you can sit and watch one too soon. It reinstates God is in his realm and showing us all the gorgeous colors before losing the sun and the moon so pale against the sky its awesome to share with friends.

I lived on Lake Erie, Pa. for awhile and they were supposed to have the best sunsets. They were nice, but I thought Hawaii's were nicer. They are all pretty, and I like sunsets much more than sunrise because to see a sunrise you either have to get up early (which I hate) or stay up all night (which I can't do anymore).

I love sunsets, I really do and can identify with what you have said. I don't live on the coast anymore but I would often ride my bike along the Promenade, then sit on a bench watching the sun set. Blackpool isn't St Tropez but it felt like it whenever I saw spectacular sunsets like that. It's one thing I miss..and the sea air of course!
