Outer Banks – Part 5 – Sunset

The last full day at the Outer Banks was cloudy and rainy.  (See our other days adventures in part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4)  There were a few breaks in the rain and occasionally I would venture outside to smell the ocean air or listen to the waves crashing.

Towards late evening we watched to see if the skies would clear up enough to try for a sunset.  After going back and forth we decided to ride down the street just a little ways and see what it would do.

We weren’t disappointed and ended up glad that we made the drive.  🙂

I love how the sun creates the golden shimmer across the gentle lapping waves.

As the sun dipped lower and lower, the hue changed from golden yellow to fiery orange yellow and created beautiful highlights behind the clouds.

That last little dip takes place so fast if you quit looking you will miss it.

From there is was off to bed for me as well.  I would need to rise early to make the long trip home.  Sad to leave of course, but happy and content with my visit with good friends.  Life is good.
