DAY IS DONE...

Golden sunlight...It's the end of the day.

We head out to the dock to watch the progression of the sun as it 
sets over Lake Harris...(Tavares, FL)
The light begins to dim...
     gentle waves lap the shore as a boat glides by...
    Just a little bit to the left, you can glimpse the sun as it heads into the horizon....

And the show begins...








Then goodnight, peaceful night,

Till the light of the dawn shineth bright.

God is near, do not fear,

Friend, goodnight.

*This final verse, in one of the lyrical adaptations of Taps, was written by Horace Lorenzo Trim

May your day and night be filled with peace...
Jane

I am linking with Laura at Wayfaring Wednesday and

Beautiful pictures. I've been to Tavares twice before. Once 35 years ago, and then again 30 years ago. It was beautiful then, and it still looks beautiful now. Thanks for sharing the great shots. Visiting from WW.

These photos are lovely and very sweet. I think they really create an emotion that you can't really describe when you see them. Great set.

I just discovered your lovely blog and I look forward to popping by again for some more inspiration! I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.
