The Best Sunset of My Life


Winter sunset over Elliott Bay, Seattle.

Winter sunset over Elliott Bay, Seattle.

Sipping coffee watching the Travel Channel this morning, I realized that I have not achieved something that should be on everyone’s bucket list – the best sunset of my life.

I have seen some pretty ones, even some beautiful ones, but I cannot bring to mind a sunset that I would say was heart stopping, soul satisfying, now-I-can-die sunset.

Sugar Beach, off the coast of Maui, HI is a place where I’ve viewed some very lovely golden moments. But is it the sunset or the company you see it with?

Now that I’ve seen (at least on TV ) views from San Sebastian, Spain or from it’s southern coast in Andalusia, I really need to start working more diligently on that bucket list entry.

For me, sunsets invoke leisure, calm attitude and a  glass of  wine. I would choose a glass of rose’, issued from some lovely grenache’  or  mouvedre. What could be a more beautiful pairing then to see the sunset through rose’ colored glasses?

So tell me, where was your Best Sunset of your life? And what’s in your glass?

Tell me, I need to start my list.
