Many nights I would just go outside when I took my dog out and just sit on the tailgate of my truck and just look. Before I knew it I had been outside for over an hour. Just looking up.

There was also a light breeze blowing. There are a few lights around at the few houses that are around here. The quiet was only interrupted by the occasional car or truck making its way along US 701 just a few hundred yards away.

Aside from sitting on the beach listening to the waves, it was about the most peaceful time I have been able to spend of late. The only thing missing was Lil.
