# Birthday Celebrations # Love

Magical Moments ..

Beautiful isn't it ..
and the best birthday gift wouldn't you agree ...??

So, last Saturday as I turned a year older this is what hubs and me did..We drove down to Sunset Cliffs Blvd in San Diego to witness this, the miracle of nature we so take for granted in our day to day lives ...
It was amazing how as the Sun began its descent, scores of people turned up , some with coffee, others with soft drinks , some with their beach chairs and others with their beach mats ..like there was a party thrown by Nature and everyone invited ..
For once it didn't seem to matter who you were , where you came from , what you did ..no one cared ..everyone was there for the simple reason ..
to watch the glorious performance of Nature ..
to watch the fiery orange slowly soften and embrace the indigo of the night ..

and me , well I watched too , sitting beside the man who I so love ,
and I marvelled ..

Someone rightly said,
"It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream."

I am still dreaming ..
I know the best is yet to be ..
