Great photo for a Saturday

I had the pleasure of a visit from my sister and her family this week and it's always a joy to see the place I call home through the eyes of some people to whom all of this is different and exotic. It's funnny, the older I get the more I realize just how important it is to have a place where I come from and to maintain the connections with the people who were there way back then.

My niece Nancy took this photo on Wednesday, and it was all her composition. She had two of her sisters and I stand in the surf and salute the setting sun.


I've seen more sunsets over the Gulf than I can count, but I can't think of one that was as glorious as the one on Wednesday when I was surrounded by nieces.

  1. Thanks Melody, I'll pass along your compliment to Nancy. That was on North Redington Beach by the way, not to far from where you and Gene stay when you're down here.
