As days come to a close, an array of colors from Mother Nature's color palette emerge in the skies above coastal Georgia with shades of yellow, gold, orange, purple and pink often making an appearance.
While each sunset is beautiful in and of itself, there are times when they stop me in my tracks. One evening, for example, I was driving back to Savannah from Tybee Island and had to pull off to the side of the road. I ended up parking at the entrance to the Ft. Pulaski National Monument on U.S. Highway 80, which is halfway between Savannah and Tybee Island. And I was not the only one. A number of people pulled over and stopped. We were in awe of the gorgeous sunset and those with cameras grabbed them. On this particular evening, it was as if there were an eye in the sky.
Another example of a breathtaking sunset occurred while I was having dinner at Uncle Bubba's Oyster House in Savannah. The way in which the shades of purple, yellow, gold and orange mixed with the clouds produced such as spectacular sight that I had to leave the table and go to the car and get my camera.
