Goodnight Sun

Today was our last full day at the beach. Tomorrow, we'll head out before sunrise so that Jilda can be at work on time.
This evening she was packing her stuff and I walked out to the beach for one last look at the sea.
I realized the clouds had parted and that the day had all the makings of a remarkable sunset.
I hustled back to the condo and fetched Jilda. She grabbed her camera and we made it back in time to catch the sunset.
It was a gift.
Our set started at 10 p.m. tonight at the Flora-Bama bar/cafe/road side attraction/unique place on earth.
It's not always an easy crowd.  One look at the roof should give you a clue. There must be a thousand bra's hanging on a wire just above the heads of the crowd.
We arrived early and the crowd was indeed rowdy, but when we began to play, things settled noticeably, and they listened.
Jilda was on her game, and I think we both did well. We played the Frank Brown International Songwriter Festival back in 2001 but we didn't play the Flora-Bama. Tonight we did, and we both came home smiling. 
We heard some great music tonight, and we both feel blessed to have been a part of it all.
