Two years ago, on our 25th anniversary, my husband and I spent the weekend at Pacific City along the Oregon Coast. We climbed a huge sand dune, to sit on the edge of a cliff where we were treated to this unexpectedly beautiful sunset.
It was so lovely we did not want to leave. As the sun crept toward the sea the air grew so chilly, I was shivering in my thin wrap. But suddenly, a bubble of warm air, scented with the fragrant aroma of cedar whisked itself around us. And it stayed. It was the most astounding thing. I think it might have been a puff of warm air from the bonfires people had built on the beach below. It was a truly magical evening.
This is an untouched photo of what we saw.
If you look closely, you can see the legendary Phoenix winging her way across the skies.
