Growing up in Erie, Pa I never really knew how fortunate I was. In the summers I would play outside with my brothers all day and into the night until it was time to go in for showers and bed then get up and do it all over again every day. Not until my adult life had I ever stopped and just looked at the colors in the sky to really appreciate them. Erie, Pa has been listed by National Geographic magazine in the past as spot to enjoy best sunsets in the world.
On this summer evening I was driving across the Bayfront Highway and was enjoying the colors and in turn decided to stop. Thankfully I carry my GoPro with quite often and the way the colors were I couldn't pass up just parking the car and start walking to the waters edge and take some photos. Many evenings it is like this and I am starting to always stop and appreciate it no matter what else is going on. I'm thankful for where I live and my family who I'm surrounded by!
