Come Skywatchin' With Me..

It's finally starting to cool off a bit here, in Jacksonville, FL. It was in the upper 70's today, and has been down into the 60's at night. Now is when I start to go to the beach more, and just generally get out and about. I wish it was like this year 'round. Next year I'll plan my vacation to be a little later than I usually do, probably mid to late september, I've missed the Big E 2 years running, so that's on my radar for next year.


Anyhoo, I had the pleasure of seeing a beautiful sunset the other night at my usual location: the public boat ramp just down the road a bit. The colors were so vibrant, and the weather was perfect, I stayed til it sank and took quite a few pics. Still waiting on the hawk to show again, too.


Here's the sun as it's disappearing behind the trees....just lovely, no??
And please go here to see links to many more participants of Skywatchers from around the world as we all share bits of the same (but different) sky.
