six o'clock

Coastal Living Magazine June 2014 
{a few quotes from their editor, Antonia}

The best time of day at the beach is 6 p.m. 

There’s a whole other level of awesomeness.

The temperature has dropped, the air is cooler, most everyone has gone home, and the beach is empty. There is a quiet lapping of the water, as though even the ocean has finally exhausted itself and just wants to hang out.

You stretch. You breathe a sigh of contentment. You draw slow circles in the sand with your hand then sweep it clear and start again.

You're too relaxed to think about packing up to leave. You stay a little longer. The shadows are getting a little longer too.

You sit back to enjoy the last rays from your chair.  This is when I appreciate the beach the most – the day is done; it’s hard to leave.  Six o’clock is when I realize how much I love the beach.

This is so true. I have missed my time at the beach.It has been awhile.
I need to go to the beach to breath. I held my breath long enough.

Great picture, winter day??? NICE!

Your six o'clock picture carries me away, and I am right there sitting on the beach soaking it all in. Great picture!

I really agree with this! 6pm and 6am are both wonderful. We were at the beach last week with 14 family members. Such great memories. :)
