City Life

SDP 3-11-16
The SDP Editor-in-Chief made an executive decision to interrupt the Sunshine Skyway photos (which were interrupting the sunset photos) to bring you twilight in Sarasota last night.  This is a lovely spot right in the city limits along Sarasota Bay.   According to Google maps, it's 12 minutes from my house. Amazingly, though, I managed to slide into position within a cool 9 minutes (in high tourist season whilst adhering to the speed limit).  There wasn't much of a sunset, but twilight made up for it!  As if on cue, a bright sliver of moon appeared over the bay.  And, fish started jumping….which many times means they're trying to flee a predator.  Sure enough…about 25 yards away, a dolphin was slowly swimming around the cove looking for dinner.  It was so quiet on the water I could hear water blasting through the dolphin's blowhole as it surfaced.  Great evening….very peaceful and relaxing.

That sounds like a perfect evening to me...and it certainly looks like one in your photo. A dolphin would cap everything off perfectly. Sweet!

Your part of the world is especially beautiful with just a tad of moon glow!

This is a beautiful photo. I can almost feel the ambience just by reading your words.
