smitten for sunsets
Have I mentioned before that I love sunsets?
It’s true though…I’ve pretty much never seen a sunset (or sunrise, for that matter) that I didn’t think was breathtakingly beautiful.
And a sunset over a lake…well,¬†Hallelujah!
This is Storm Lake in Storm Lake, IA. ¬†We stay at a resort there every once in awhile while Daryl works for Sara Lee there.
The sun goes down at the perfect spot over the lake.
Yesterday (when I took these) the wind was blowing like a hurricane! ¬†The water was a little choppy.
It’s so cool to be able to see the sun go all the way down to the horizon. ¬†I haven’t seen that since we left Texas! (:
You can rent sailboats. ¬†But you wouldn’t have wanted to be out in a sailboat on this day – I’m pretty sure the wind would’ve just blown you up in the air and nobody would ever see you again.
This isn’t the sunset over the lake. ¬†It’s the sunrise over the open highway in Northern Missouri. ¬†We left for Iowa at 5am.
