Last week’s daylight savings maneuver wasn’t so enjoyable with a two year old who doesn’t know the difference between 5:00AM and 6:00AM, but the one benefit was that it turned my daily ferry ride home into something magical.
It happened at just the right time to see some spectacular sunsets over San Francisco and the Bay Bridge.
I couldn’t help but pull out my iPhone and start snapping away. Mother Nature was reeeeeallly showing off. Perfect weather too.
I didn’t understand how people could sit inside the ferry and read books or talk on the phone when this magnificent thing was happening outside.
I kept pinching myself, so excited to be able to stop and do nothing for twenty minutes except stare at this wonderful and fleeting moment. Just breathing and taking it all in.
These ferry ride sunsets have been such an unexpected treat and a great way to unwind from the stresses of work. I know! Much better than the 45 minutes of traffic I experienced this morning traveling over the Bay Bridge!
By the end of the week, I noticed that my evening ferry commutes were already getting darker earlier. But I will always have that one special week when everything was perfectly timed.
Are you taking advantage of these early sunsets right now?
