Up until yesterday we've had some gorgeous weather and I also had my car again -- always a major plus! Anyway, I visited my friends at the sanctuary and then watched a huge boat sailing past the overlook at the harbor at sunset. It was pretty awesome!

The ducks and turtles were mixing it up and seem to be doing a lot of communicating -- of one kind or another! Guess they were happy about the sunshine, too!



And then the sunset reflections on the water!

I prefer the second and the third. We can see often this kind of sky, this year, I don't remember before.
It's seems like a divine floodlight on the sea.
