French Beach Sky

Today's sky is for Sky Watch where there are lots of photos from everywhere.  These photos are from French beach.  Last week we went on a drive to Sombrio beach and French beach. We had a great day with the surfers on Sombrio.  It was amazingly warm and sunny. There were huge waves and everyone was enjoying themselves.  I will put in the  photos later of that beach day.  We spent the whole day on the beach and had so much fun and then at the end of the day we were driving home exhausted and thought we had finished our day and this is the gift nature bestowed upon us as we arrived at French beach. I ran down the walkway as dusk was soon to settle upon us and snapped a few hundred shots. It was one of my best photo days ever. Hope you enjoy the shots and Happy New Years.

A gorgeous sunset is the perfect way to end a day at the beach. These are spectacular.

Hope to see you at the Cyber Masquerade Ball.
