That’s the view from my balcony on the Caribbean island to which I returned this year for the 5th time in a row, an annual mid-term-break ritual that is becoming as natural as smiling. I snapped the sunset the other day just as the sun had settled beyond the horizon and the sky was starting to glow with the kind of orange-pink pallet one could only find in tropical climes. Sunsets are beautiful everywhere and Canadian sunsets, particularly in the fall, can illuminate the northern skies with the most astonishing deep blues and purples. But let’s face it, it’s way better being warm in February, and a total privilege being able to assess the merits of the sun’s ocean daily dip into the sea, ranking sunsets for the intensity of their performances and luminosity in a sort of indulgent tourist game.
