It was meant to be. We were meant to witness this sunset. ... one of the most spectacular sunsets I had ever seen. But how it came to be is a story that we will always remember. It was Wednesday evening. The night before the Stan Sperlak workshop. We were in town early and met with Sharon, the 4th member of the Georgia contingent. We wanted to have an early dinner and catch the sunset somewhere. That was the extent of our plan.
We decided on seafood since we were surrounded by the Atlantic ocean and Delaware Bay. We should be able to get some good seafood. So I looked up nearby seafood restaurants on Tripadvisor and we decided to go with the number one rated place. It was supposed to be a local place with great seafood.

Just then we caught a glimpse of orange through the trees.....OOOOOOOHHHHHH we all said in unison. We pulled up to the beach, jumped out of Viv with cameras in hand. The sun had set.... but the sky was simply spectacular. There was this dark purple cloud above and the most brilliant orange and yellow below it. It kept getting more and more colorful until it turned a fiery magenta that surely must be in Terry Ludwig's Vibrant pastel collection. It was awesome. We stayed taking pictures until the last bit of color was gone.
And to think that if we had not eaten at the bait shop we wouldn't have gotten the tip for this very private beach and the most spectacular sunset ever. It was meant to be.
