I have been traveling so much recently that I haven’t had a chance to watch a sunset at home. Tonight I had dinner with girlfriends, and then took a walk up to the University. The colors were not spectacular, but they were pretty tonight, capping off a beautiful day.
Last night I went for a walk in the neighborhood, to clear my head, get some fresh air, and shake off the day. It was a warm, summer night, those nights that are all too short-lived here.
I ended up at the university; I often end up there. It is such a peaceful place in the evening, when there are few students there.
I watched the sunset over the water, and snapped a couple other photos as I did a loop of campus.
A beautiful sunset!

One of my favorite sculptures there; a strong woman.

I hope you are all having a good week – more than halfway to the weekend!
Some long tiring weeks have kept me from posting more lately, but I couldn’t resist sharing this beautiful sunset. Just a few more days before the weekend…
Sunset at the Marina, Everett, Washington
I walked up to the University yesterday evening to watch the sunset. It was beautiful!

It also made me reminisce on some of the other beautiful sunsets I’ve seen over the years.

I know my future travels will add more beautiful sunsets.
Which one is your favorite?
Life hasn’t gotten any less crazy lately, so I’m still so far behind on posts! But meanwhile, here’s a little sneak peak of my trip in December. More coming soon, I promise!
The sun sets over Joshua Trees…

Jon and I got home last night from a trip to California. I’ll be posting about it soon, and posting the rest of my trip to Olympic National Park, but in the meantime, I thought I would share this photo from the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge. Enjoy!
