Florida or Belgium?
|Belgian sunset, circa 9:45 pm|
It’s never the same.
But my view on it is this:
Summer sunsets go to Belgium.

For one I’m there to see them (and from a pretty good hill I might add). Second is duration. Not that you have to pay by the minute – no that’s not it – but in terms of getting the most bang for your buck (or Euro as it may be), I’ve been sitting here for the better part of an hour (it’s 10:15 pm) watching the bending of light at the horizon unfold.
Finally by 10:40 pm it will be completely dark.
But not to worry – the sun is back up again at 4 am.
(That makes curtains essential if you want to sleep in.)

Winter sunsets of course go to Florida …
Particularly if viewed from the waterfront looking west.
But don’t be late!
These are “early bird” specials.
You’ll want to have your chair set up by 5:30 pm sharp.
