Sittin on the Dock of the Bay...


The picture I have posted is what I get to see everyday. I took a few minutes this evening, from prepping for the upcoming weekend, to go down to the dock and watch the sunset. I was alone, sitting on the dock of the bay, wasting time with my camera. The sun was a huge ball of orange, the waters were calm, the small wakes were slapping against the dock. I sat there for maybe all of 7 minutes watching the sun set over the horizon. I felt a sense of peace come over me as the sky brightened to orange and pink. All I kept thinking was how fortunate I am to be in this place at this time. However tired I am, however much work I have left to do, I am going to walk to the bay or the ocean and take a few minutes out of each day to thank God for sharing all this with me. I cant wait until you all come over and spend some of this time with me.

what a beautiful picture....it reminds me of the peacefulness that I enjoyed at my lake house on Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri.
I can't wait to come for a visit and collect my free drink! Mike

Sorry about that, thought I did add your blog. And why are you still boycotting mine if I took off the comment blocker?
