Driving along the shore is not so much fun when there is a huge pile of sand between you and the sea. Nevertheless we had fun. The very thought that we are along the shore was enough excitement to drive. It was like a driving practice session with not a lot of cars around and the speed limit being high. It was a monotonous drive for the most time, but we stopped here and there to catch the view of the sea. Since we were on the eastern shores, Shankar wanted to stop by one of the backwater areas to get the view of sunset.
I doubted if we will find appropriate parking space, but we managed to park the car for a few minutes at Mile 46. Shankar caught a glimpse of the sunset there. It was the best sunset I have ever seen. The water, pristine and peaceful, it felt like a dreamland, only a few meters away from the road. I could hardly believe I was standing there and witnessing the sun go down.
While I felt the trip to the beach was spoiled by the freezing temperatures at the sea, this view of sunset made the trip memorable. The serenity of the whole view and the stillness gave us the chills for a moment. I am posting a few pictures from that memorable sunset view.
Another beautiful sunset from my recent trip to Charlottesville, Virginia. The sunset at Blue Ridge was an amazing view. We went crazy for sunset after seeing the one at Mile 46, Outer Banks, North Carolina. We drove to the Blue Ridge till we could get a blissful sunset view. It was definitely worth the drive, as you can see.
I felt bad for not having been at the Manhattan this year for the Manhattanhenge. From our last trip, we resolved to see one beautiful sunset every trip, and maybe try doing a picnic.
