A Sip of Wine and a Sunset


Sitting on our front verandah this evening and sipping wine, this scene greeted us. I took the photo with my phone. Cheers – to life and to sunsets.


About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

      Thanks Sally. It’s one of those wonderful Summer evenings we have here.


      • Makes me want to visit again! By the way, enjoy London when the time comes next month. πŸ™‚

        Thank you. Yes, we can’t wait. I just love it there. My sons were telling me that it’s pretty cold there now so we’re preparing for the change. It’s quite a shock going from what is essentially a tropical climate to that of England. But nothing will stop us from going. Beautiful country.

    Looks goooooooood. Sunset and wine, two great spirits.

    In contrast, the sun is just beginning to set, though I doubt we’ll see it tonight. We’re being hit with snow squalls and streamers coming off the great lakes -intermittent white out conditions . With strong winds, though only -6 C, the wind chill is about -15. Had to put on fat man clothes (ie parka and thick mittens to take Elvira out for a romp). So uncork another bottle and drink on my behalf .

    Beautiful shot Don! I liked your expression-‘Cheers to life and to sunsets’. Not many people in the world are able to carry that attitude πŸ™‚ Have a safe journey to London and have a funtabulous time there with your kids.
