Today’s report is by Jim. Even when it’s dark, the color of the sunset lingers. Most people leave, but I stay because a camera, with a long exposure set, can capture color that is not visible to the eye. It smooths out waves, draws out clouds and simplifies chaos. It doesn’t matter when you’re there, this is Happy Hour Beach. Every hour is happy hour here.

Reminder: Keith and Jim will be down in Fishtown from 2-5pm on Saturday 8/6 to sell and sign books. $1 from every sale of the book goes to the Fishtown Preservation Society. That’s not just today, that’s ongoing. Come on down! Meggen Watt Petersen and Sandra Serra Bradshaw will also be there.
