That reflection in the sand is just AWESOME of the stunning colors you captured Donna. We should have gone to the beach instead of the ranch and I would have stayed longer...maybe. *(I knew traffic was going to be bad) It was have been a lot cooler. The ranch was just to hot and dusty. LOL Speaking of HOT OMG it's cooking today!!!
