CT: Fairfield County-Darien-Pear Tree Point Beach (off -season sunset)

In my continued quest for off season drive up sunsets (i.e., places in season for residents only), brought me to 8 acre Pear Tree Point Beach in Darien on this November evening.

As I approached the beach I already felt like I was on a European vacation. I knew the feeling would only be for about an hour but it certainly is an hour that balances me from the stresses of the day.

The below shot was on my way to the beach. Oftentimes I find myself driving to a destination and thinking about something else I need to do. Happily I saw the site of the reflecting bridge in front of the ball of fiery sun. I pulled over to see the metal gate and stone walls angled in front of the water. This was my gift today for being present.

Be Present Gift of the Day!

This evening, there were actually more cars than expected in the lot. Turns out it was for a surprise birthday shout out and car honking for a surprise guest. Since the pandemic I have seen and heard of many car parades for such special events. I note for us to recall the pandemic and things we needed to do to remain uplifted- as hopefully soon it will pass.

Happy to otherwise find the gazebo available, I took my spot to experience the magical natural prism of colors, reflections and shadows.

Join me off-season to find more drive up sunsets!
