What a way to experience a sunset! Picture a gray overcast evening with little hope of good photo opportunities. That's what we thought when we took a sunset cruise with Captain Noe at Dolphin Docks in Port Isabel TX. When we left the dock, he filled us with fun facts and tall tales until we reached the dolphin hangout where they delighted everyone with their antics.
We were with our friends, Bonnie and Herm. Bonnie, Herm and I took hundreds of photos, along with most of the other passengers. Calm winds and beautiful weather enhanced our trip. As the evening progressed, the clouds broke away just in time for a fantastic sunset behind the causeway. Captain Noe maneuvered the boat to provide some great shots.
While I know I can never capture the full beauty of the sunset over the bay, I made the effort. I fall in love with my own photos - maybe because they are enough to remind me of nature's spectacular show.
On a busy holiday weekend, life can't get much better than that.
