A Perfect Sunset In The Boonies, On A Rather Perfect Day…
Sometimes pictures tell the story best, sometimes the story makes it even better. We had a simply awesome sunset last night, the kind that inspires you to gawk and write blogs about. Best of all, we had a 360 degree view of the whole show from our awesome boondocking spot in the Borrego Hills. It’s on days like this that I feel very, very lucky to be alive. In fact it’s on days like this that everything seems to go right (don’t you love those days)?
Now interestingly enough the day before yesterday was the other kind of day, the day where everything is a struggle. Nothing serious mind you, just little, irritating, poke-you-in-the-ribs kind of things that serve to really ruin your good groove. It started from the early morning. I dropped the entire bag of coffee on the floor (doh!), smashed a glass (dingbat!), got cut-off in traffic and nearly swerved into the shoulder (idiot!), drove 15 miles to a store that didn’t have what I needed (even tho’ I’d called beforehand to check…grrr!), called our San Diego cat vet to find out they have no open appointments for the next 2 months (argh!), bashed my head on the cabinet (ouch!), managed to break the satellite dish (what?), found 3 cat “presents” in the bed (yuk!)…you know what I mean.
Then yesterday it all swapped around spontaneously. With the dawn of the cool desert sun and solitude of the hills, things just seemed to meld together in perfect natural harmony. My noggin’ stayed obstacle-free, the vet called to tell me they had a last-minute cancellation and could fit us in this month, the satellite dish miraculously started working all by itself, our glassware stayed intact, total feline harmony was restored….you see what I mean?
So of course the sunset was going to be spectacular. I mean with a set-up like that what else would you expect? And indeed we got the FULL theatre show. An epic, even by desert standards. From the first drop of the sun behind the clouds to the spectacle of yellows, oranges, pinks and reds. It was a constantly changing, constantly awe-inspiring light show with cascades of color flashing the sky from every direction.
The perfect end to a rather perfect day and pretty darn nice for first full day in the boonies. Just makes you wonder what tomorrow will bring….
