To find the air and the water exhilarating . . . sunset on Elliott Bay

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter . . . to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
— John Burroughs, Leaf and Tendril

I was sauntering by the downtown Seattle waterfront just as the sun was setting by the ferry terminal on Elliott Bay.  A beautiful late summer evening.
