Windy Sunset

Last night I picked up my friend Gabe we didn’t have any plans so we decided why not go watch the sunset? We drove up to the water tower on East Camino Cielo. The drive up was gorgeous, the mountains were purple and everything was somewhat orange.

When we got there I went to open my door and I found that it was a bit more difficult than usual because I was fighting the wind. When we got out of the car the wind was extremely strong, we could lean into without falling over. Then I was freezing and just wanted to get back into the car because I didn’t really care about missing the sunset at that point.

But my friend Gabe told me to stay because it was really pretty. Then I remembered the blanket that I had in my trunk but the only problem was that it was difficult to keep a hold of it while I was climbing the ladder on the water tower. Finally me and him were on the water tower and I tried to wrap the blanket around me. That didn’t go well… at all! I got pulled forward and all I wanted to do was be warm and watch a sunset. My friend was laughing at me as he watched me struggle but I din’t find it that funny.

Finally I got the blanket somewhat wrapped around me an then we sat there and enjoyed part of the sunset. But me, being the whimp that I am when I’m cold, went back to the car before the sun fully set. When Gabe got to the car he saw that I was taking a nap and that I was all bundled up in my blanket.

At last, it was time to go home! It was nice being in the car with the heater and I was actually able to enjoy the rest of the sunset on the drive down. It was much more enjoyable with the heater by the way.

If you ever have time I recommend going somewhere with a view over your town to watch the sunset, and try to bring a friend!
