A normal size migraine hit yesterday with effects that lasted until the OFM awoke this morning. The good news is you did not have to put up with any nonsense from him last night.

It was a nothing special day of gray cool and sometimes misty drizzle. THEN sunset happened. There must have been three zillion cameras working out at the harbor alone. People were real pleasant at staying out of each others way for photographs. 

The Teams shot about forty pictures and four of them made it to the blog tonight. These were all taken near the harbor where the OFM actually caught another undersize fish in spite of himself.

But let us get to the good stuff. We were fishing in the gray yuk evening when suddenly EVERYTHING changed color. We looked around to see what was going on. Nearly clear sky and a WOW sunset was going on.

Keep in mind this whole sequence happened in about 45 minutes and folks were rushing into the area taking thousands of pictures.

First the OFM shot several  pictures that had sailboat masts in them with the spectacular sky exploding all over everywhere. Here is our winner. 

Then the lighting shifted downward and we caught this scene with nets and working boats in the picture. Again several pictures were taken as we dodged in between lots of folks.

The lighting changed dramatically and we switched 180 degrees to viewing the bay and pier. The moon started its dramatic performance and we watched the whole thing. It was awesome.

And then just as it was getting good and dark Sierra took us to a new view point at the Rockport Beach. Once more many pictures were taken and this one won the prestige of being shown by The OFM Teams.

As you can see we had a wonderful final hour to the day. And yes we came very close to having tooooo much fun.
