Winter Sunset over the Sea. Devonport, Tasmania. Australia.

Devonport is in North Western Tasmania, Australia at the mouth of the Mersey River.  It's also known as the Gateway to Tasmania no doubt due to the Ferry from Devonport to Melbourne, Australia going across Bass Strait.
Devonport is a small city, and it's where my dad lives in his two story house. Today I took some photos of a typical winters sunset with a mild evening.

The first photo is the view from dads house, and the pink/orange can just been seen at the horizon along with a few clouds to the left.  The beach is to the right just down the hill, to the left is more ocean plus rural scenery.  From the kitchen, dinning room, lounge room, each of the 4 bedrooms, plus the billiard room along with the two garages, the patio upstairs and down I can see the sea.  My father of course knows of this view and sometimes can tell me what the sea is like, a lot of it is from memory :) for those whom don't know, my dad is legally blind.

This view is around from the beach and of course taken on our way home. (My husband and myself)

    1. Jo-Anne, it is a lovely view one I take for granted seeing as I see it every week for days at a time. At home I have mountains to look at in the distance with some power lines in the way :)

  5. It's a great argument for embracing and enjoying what each day has to offer - you never know when you'll have to rely on your memories. The shading in the sky is magnificent - I just hope your father's memory can take him there whenever he wishes.
