Kentucky Color - Destination Sunset
By Billy Joe Fudge
Standing on the Old San Carlos Boulevard Fishing Pier at Fort Myers Beach during sunset will plunge one into emotional and optic overload! Many of us who who can't paint a wall, suffer an urge to set up an easel and canvas, lay hold to an artist palette and knife, don a French Wool Beret and create a masterpiece!
The first week of May in Southwest Florida is mind-bendingly beautiful and most times, very comfortable.
The Gulf beaches are awash with sun bleached white and their waters are flush with massive, shadowy, schools of bait fish passing by land lubbing sunbathers or tickling the bodies of swimmers! Many times Manatees will wander from bays to check out swimmers and passing families of Dolphins.
But back to the spectacular Summer sunsets over San Carlos Bay as viewed from Fort Myers' Beach; hundreds and sometimes thousands of beachgoers seem to share a sigh of satisfaction and collective appreciation for the Creation. That moment is a "dramatic pause", real and tangible, neither preceding nor following The Reveal but enveloped by it!
