Sunsets are a beautiful experience any time but somehow when you are near the ocean they seem to fill the sky and be cause for celebration.
People stop and watch, breathe a little deeper, and let the cares of the day slide right off their shoulders.
The colors are spectacular.
Reds and oranges, golds, pinks and mauves all against a blue sky as it fades to black and the stars come out.
Sunset celebrations in the Keys vary from the raucous party in Mallory square to a lone fisherman drinking a beer as he packs up his catch.
My particular favorite is to watch the sun go down in Fort Zachary Taylor state park. but they we have to ride our bikes very quickly to get out of the park before they lock the gates. It's worth the rush!
I will have to make it a point to stop and enjoy the evening ritual when we are back home in New York. Feel free to join us for Margarita's and Corona's this summer as the sun goes down. We won't even make you ride your bike home in the dark.
