Dusk from the deck at Al’s Mar Azul in Vieques, Puerto Rico. Sunsets over the ocean are transformative. The 15 minutes before and the 15 minutes after the sun sets are the best half hour of the day. It doesn’t matter how my day went, once the sun starts to descend over the horizon, I’m in a better place than I was before. When I finally own a beach bar, it will have to be on the west coast of some island somewhere. Happy hour at sunset with all your favorite customers/friends trying to spot the green flash with a rum infused drink in hand? It doesn’t get much better than that.
