Sunset -- sharing the sky

Sunset over Lake Pontchartrain as we start our 24-mile journey back across the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway. I am every time amazed in the variety of sunsets -- no two are alike. We love to roll down the top of Linda's convertible and enjoy the breeze (of course down here, we usually have our air conditioning on, too).

Night gives fair warning of its coming and, for a time, the dark and light share the sky. As we approach the other side, New Orleans rises in the sky, ornamenting it with nightlights of the Crescent City Connection bridge and the light-sprinkled skyscrape of downtown.

Nothing better than a NOLA sunset. Beautiful Steve! I can't wait... one week until I'm down there again and can see a real NOLA sunset in person. Been too long! Cheers!
