Sandy Eggo has a marine layer of clouds that comes in and swallows sunsets. It looks like a good one is developing however the wait comes to an abrupt end when the sun is engulfed in a thick layer of grey.
May Grey and June Gloom are famous for the anticlimatic end to the days in this area just when you think summer should be here it is off. Now, I am not complaining because it keeps us from getting scorching hot until August but it is just so frustrating to have a limp sunset.
The tropical sunsets I saw on Bali, Indonesia were the best. The whole sky lit up and we had sunset marathons where we would give them all grades and they were mostly A's. Flaming orange and red sunsets with magnificent magenta and deep purple endings are so passionate. These wimply Southern California sunsets seem to mock me.
I did get some nice shots of the sun as it was promising to go down in a silvery flash through the trees. It played peek a boo with me as I walked toward the boardwalk. I love these twisted trees.
There was a group gathered around a magic act and I love to watch magic. He was a cute little fellow and had people tie him up and then he would escape. I gave him a dollar and so did about twenty other people. He was a Houdini.
This is the park where I met my boyfriend. We had so much fun here and I was moping around sitting on odd benches like an invisible old lady tonight. There were other places I could have gone to be with people but I thought there was going to be a festival here so I went. There was just the one magic act. Tomorrow is the festival.
But when life gives you a limp sunset and disappointing evening you make the best of it. I got this great shot after the magic show was over.
There is always hope.
