Sunset Departure. Photography and Text by Keith R Wahl

At the end of the day, tendrils from the sky lasso us to urge us home. The surf is calming and flattening, so "knee high or die" no longer applies. It's time to gather the boards and head home. But first, take in this sublime moment.
Weigh the anchor from the sand, put the boards along the gunwales, and heave off into the channel. Light the navigation lights. Pull the cord and feel the kick of the flywheel as the outboard engine starts. Heave the tiller over and head off into the radiant sunset against the current.
It's a departure into the sunset. Or is it that the sunset is departing from us? No matter, the sun will come back tomorrow, as will the surf.
If you enjoyed this post, please consider buying us a coffee to continue the work...
