Yesterday, my daughter and I took an evening drive to the nearest town that has a WalMart. For us that is a river town called Boonville. We decided to walk on the walkway by the side of the bridge that crosses the Missouri River. I, of course, took my camera along to get a shot of the sun going down in a pretty orange sky.
After a short walk, we turned around and went back to the car and drove to the Lookout Point at the City Park. It was about time to say goodbye to the sun. The sky had changed from the fiery orange into a soft pink and blue.
The river is still very high. You can see water standing in the fields on the other side of the tree-lined bank of the river. We had a good rain in this area yesterday. I just hope the river doesn't get any higher.
We enjoyed the quiet setting for a few minutes until a motorcycle zoomed in and we decided it was time to leave and get our shopping done. We just wanted to stop and enjoy a Missouri river sunset.
"If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God."
~ Gilbert K. Chesterton
Until next time...
