Last fall, Chaz was given six weeks off for a sabbatical. We spent five of those weeks on a road trip to the west coast and working our way down the coast before returning home. Part of the fun I had was chasing the setting sun. My first picture was taken in Montana because weather was bad in Wisconsin on our first day.
Some sunsets were difficult to capture because of where we were while in the car in relation to the sunset, but I snapped as many as I could. While working on the scrapbook, I asked myself why I haven’t shared them yet. I didn’t have a good answer.
So here you go, some of my favorite sunsets on our adventure.
If you read Family Ties, we were in Encinitas for almost a week and I took pictures of some points of interest from the book and shared them during a Facebook party. The above picture was taken our first day while driving my best friend’s mom home after taking her out to dinner.
Cardiff Beach is one of the points of interest in Family Ties. The evening even gave us a burnt orange sunset.
We had just spent the afternoon with two different author friends of mine before the sunset above. First was lunch with Kennedy Ryan, and then wandering Balboa Park with Richard Mellinger. I am going to share more from this day later – because writers.
The above is from our hotel room while waiting to meet my partner in crime, Douglas B. Wimmer, for dinner. There may or may not have been a competitive game of miniature golf afterward. I’ll never tell.
Oklahoma was the the last sunset on the road. And yes, if you’re checking out the gas pump, it really says “Kum & Go.” We are all twelve right now.
