Mother nature provided a spectacular light show for my birthday. An impressive sunset fringed by Stonehenge shaped clouds along the horizon was followed by an even more remarkable setting of a pink crescent moon accompanied by Venus flashing red as it started to sink into the sea. As if that wasn't enough of a treat, the full expanse of the darkening night sky twinkled with millions of stars - the familiar Big Dipper taking center stage.
It was just the right ending for a perfect birthday and a relaxing few days in paradise with my best friend who just happens to be my sweet husband.
My photo doesn't do the scene justice. If you want to see the whole show click here for photos by the talented photographer and manager of the Neskowin condos where we stay each year.
