Apricot sunsets...

When I dream of summer and warmer weather
I don't crave the 100 degree weather and 95 percent humidity.

I dream of an idyllic summer.

Of warm sun and cool breezes,
Of backyard barbeques, happy smiles,
 watching the tide roll in and out again...

And reflections of apricot sunsets.

...and no humidity! Me too. Beautiful capture! I'm wondering what is on the water...it almost looks like a camera and camera bag. lol

Nice thoughts! We need some of the summer sunset memories to get us through this very white winter!

That is gorgeous. Apricot is sooo hard for me to find. I better get with it and get something...I've been contemplating buying apricots but I can't find them.

It's amazing how close to apricot that sunset reflection is! Usually it's orangy or pink, but you've captured the perfect shade of apricot! Thanks for linking up with project64!

Mmmm- warm, breezy, apricoty! Dreamy shot, Colleen! Almost feels like that today around here- everything's melting and there's an almost warm breeze blowing.

Happy Valentine's Day!
