This is my kind of sky. You captured the gorgeous hues and I like how the soaring bird and 2 people keep me looking. You live in a beautiful place literally and figuratively as your words so express that so well.

Magnificent colors in this beautiful ocean sunset view and one of my favorite quotes from Stevenson. Your dust storms and our wildfires ... hard to believe such devastation can create such beauty isn't it. Thanks so much for your visit to Happily Retired Gal ;--)
