Newport, Rhode Island is synonymous with sailing. Luckily for the local sailors, the harbor where most boats are docked or moored is the scene of some of the best sunsets in town. Most superstitious boaters believe the adage: “Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky at dawn, sailors take warn.”
Take a gander at this photo taken from the outside patio of the historical grounds of the New York Yacht Club’s location in Newport, Rhode Island. After seeing this gorgeous sunset and waking up the next morning to a beautiful day, I too, believe in the adage.
This photo was taken the night after my 15 year old son and husband left on a five night adventure sailing from Newport to Bermuda two years ago. I was filled with excitement and worry for them and our crew. Looking at the sunset knowing they were also on the water seeing the sun go down at the same time comforted me. They made it safe and sound and I was there in Bermuda to see them dock. No spectacular sunset that night, but boy did I feel terrific!
Happy Sunset Sunday.
