In Florida, in the midst of summertime, it's a good idea to take advantage of the morning hours and the evening hours for getting out and about outdoors.
This evening was a good time to take a drive over to the bay waters to watch the sunset. Mr. Meems and I were thinking fresh seafood sounded good for dinner so we headed to a favorite restaurant of ours in Tarpon Springs. It's about a 30 minute drive on two lane roads with lots of wide open spaces on either side of the road. We ate outside over the water and watched the dolphins swim by and the boats ride by.
Afterwards, we took some of the windy roads through old neighborhoods just to look at the houses and the area in general. There are some historic homes big and small... some on the water and some not. The evening air was clear and salty as we eased along with the top down on the car.
Even though there were clouds aplenty the colorful sunset did not disappoint tonight . It was intense on the western horizon with reflective pinks splashed in every other direction.
Sunset Beach was an appropriate stopping point to walk off a little too much dinner and breathe in the beauty as the night closed in on us.
