Sunset over Tequesta


Sunset over Tequesta
October 8, 2020

Sunsets and sunrises can be spectacular. I especially enjoy sunsets when there is water involved, even if from a place that I have enjoyed many times, for instance the Intracoastal Waterway looking at Tequesta from Jupiter Island.

I have enjoyed many sunsets there and they are never boring. I enjoy the colors and the reflection on the surface of the water.

Sometimes I have a subject in the foreground to play with, as I did the other night when Ethan was snorkeling. It makes the scene different yet again and reminds me of the beauty that is so easily taken for granted. The sunset the other night was especially enjoyable because we had suffered through almost a week of overcast skies which blotted the sun from our view.

As I begin the last day of my escape in Florida, I am reflecting on the over two weeks of time away from Maryland and finally living in my Florida condo. The condo has begun to feel like home because I have spent multiple weeks in a row here. In fact since late August, Chris and I have been at the condo more time than we have been in Maryland. Right now I am enjoying my 3rd Saturday in a row here, although we will be leaving early tomorrow morning to make the drive back to Maryland.

The image of the sunset and this morning's sunrise will help me to help remember this place because it will be too many months until I can return. I am like a reverse snowbird--I seem to go north for the winter.
