We Got Sunsets. You Got Sunsets?
We got the cool header from Alex last week as a reminder of summer gone by. The magic hour, golden hour, happy hour, what ever you call it, its that magic time were you are out with your loved one and a cool one putting about while the day comes to an end. We thought, today might be fun if we share our magic sunsets. So sunset away. Today despite the cold weather out there. Its summer at about 7:30..ahhhhh.
Boating home after dinner with good friends at a lakeside restaurant. A perfect end to a great day. Doesn’t get any better that this.
Warm summer sunset – Hessel, Michigan 2012
Long Island Sound off Mount Sinai
Preparing to leave for a wooden boat photo shoot in Hessel with the moon in the sky and the coffee hot. Sun popped out 45 minutes later.
As we waited for the sun to rise and burn off the mist on the lake. A great feeling and the silence was amazing.
Living on a lake facing west is hard to beat.
Brower Lake near Rockford Michigan. This night was something you just sit and stare at the few moments it’s there.
First picture was of the fog. This one’s better after the fog cleared.
A late August 2013 evening cruise on Lobdell Lake. Photo taken by my wife Marianne aboard Water Lily. We miss those evenings!
I am not sure but I think this may be Cozy Harbor on Southport Island, Maine.
I have been corrected, I guess this is West Boothbay Harbor Maine.
The small sail boats belong to the BBH Yacht Club.
Here is another from East Boothbay Harbor Maine.
From Acton Island, Lake Muskoka (July)
Some sunsets from the summers boating experiences overseas here in Sweden….
One more. Heading back to the boat after introducing some Tennessee cousins what clamming is all about in Moriches Bay, NY. They were naturals, beer helped.
Lake Archibald, Oconto County, WI
ok, its not my woody but my sailboat cruising back from michigan with my target about 20 miles ahead.
Sunset on Lake Hopatcong, NJ.
Lake Lucerne wisc
Just for fun here is one my daughter Sam sent from the MassArt Library overlooking the Boston skyline.
PS: You can actually look into Fenway park from this library.
Is the glass half full or half empty? Who cares…it’s half way to the next beer!

Still in the water at sunset! What could be better? Grand Lake, OK
Heading home aboard the Frowildo II with my brothers Fraser (l) and Charles (r), my cousin Eric (in red shirt) and my nephew Justin at the helm. August 2nd, 2012.
Somewhere in the Yucatan Peninsula
Lapstrake sunset aboard our Century Raven.
Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota.
Heading home from the Indian Point Floating Café on Table Rock Lake in our 1953 Thompson Super Deluxe.
Evening cruise Lake LBJ, Texas
Here is a shot at the end of a nice day at the Quincy Boat Show this year in our 1961 Sportcraft, what a GREAT weekend.
The gravel bar, best place for watching sunsets & roasting marshmallos.
Lake of the Ozarks last summer.
Sometimes, as I am doing my daily read of Woody Boater, I feel a little short changed at how much earlier the boating season starts and how much later it ends in other parts of the country. But if you are looking for sunset shots at 7:30 in July I am feeling a lot better. We still have over 3 hours of daylight at 7:30 in July here in Montana. Here is a shot at 10:30 PM from Whitefish Woody Weekend on Whitefish Lake, Montana.
The mystery shots from Iowa at the top of your post were taken from our 1958 Raven 22 on Lake Okoboji. Here’s a favorite shot from a few years ago with one kid driving, one singing and Mom just hanging out as sunset approaches.
Lake Tahoe at the Wright dock, 2004
The view out my front door every evening…Life is good here in McCall.
One of my favorite things to do is watching a great sunset, especially one with some clouds and spectacular color. This picture was taken as a storm was passing the Spring Lake Yacht Club. We are about a 1/2 mile inland from the Lake Michigan shoreline.
The sky broke for just a couple of minutes, and we all looked up and saw this bright yellow sky in the distance. Just breath taking in person. Shot with my 3 year old trusty Motorola cell phone.
on my way home from a day of fun on lake Michigan.
where are you on Lake Mi???
Classic wake from A ’61 Higgins on Table Rock Lake–2012
Ignore the pontoon…..
1963 23 ft Penn Yan Allseas on Bone lake Wisconsin
The northern end of Lake Chelan in the afternoon, just before cocktail hour.
Great Pic. Would like to hear more about this lake!!
Yeah, Don, that Lake Chelan photo is amazing. It make me think if England’s Lake District. What a paradise.
another one of those “WAIT, WAIT, WAIT FOR IT” SHOTS. Out on Lake Michigan, Grand Haven pier head.
Goodnight Clayton Summer 2013
Odell Lake in the High Cascades, Oregon, Aug 2013.
We get some amazing variety in ours. I think it’s because Hessel sits between the points where Lakes Superior, Michigan, and Huron intersect.
Another from Hessel. (Sorry about the snow. It happens.)
Another from Hessel.
Last summer’s homage to Andy Goldsworthy by Everett.
Hey, this looks like Hessel.
C’mon people. The sun goes down every night. We’ve got to top 100 comments with this one.
Hessel. My favorite.
Wonderful-Very Group of Seven
Hudson River Troy ny
I don’t see myself in that picture.
Thanks Matt! This was another GREAT idea.
Lake Hopatcong again
St. Joseph, Michigan. I used to live there. I mean in town, not in the lighthouse. By the way, Google “St. Joseph Lighthouse Ice Storm” for some interesting photos of the place during inclement weather.
More Hopatcong !
Forgot about the size limit!
This, from the Mt Dora end of the lake during, what else, the Mt Dora show!
Glass of Wine
Looks like the makings for a hell of a WoodyBoater calendar here?!
Hessel. There’s a sunset in here somewhere.
Reelfoot Lake Tennesse

One more Lake Hopatcong
Well, to help Alex and WB break the 100 response mark, I would like to share the following Xmas idea: How about a beautifully hand made wood handled fish net?? Made on Whidbey Island (north of Seattle). A great Xmas gift idea. There were two on display – short and long handles. $200 each. Reply for the contact info if interested…
The long handled one…
Abert Lake in the high desert of SE Oregon. The only body of water that I would not get our boat within 100 ft of. 14 miles long with an average depth of 7 ft. Salt content allows for only brine shrimp to survive. (hundreds of miles from the actual coast.)
ok ok, it is not sunset but rather sunrise at Odell Lake (Eastern Oregon) at 730am or so.
Plum Lake, Wi.
This is what Heaven looks like in my mind.
thomas d. how did you get a horse on your boat deck? all kidding aside all very nice pictures..now back to lake chelan.
lake chelan…..northwest corner of washington state between seattle and spokane
Me and the kid on Lake George chasing Smallmouth bass. Water flat calm, and most boats away for the night. Great times.
Grand Lake OK
OK Alex, I am trying my best to make the 100 mark!
Grand Lake, OK
Isn’t that last one Dora, Jim? Love the R&W.
OK, the Red and White is not on Grand Lake but is on Lake Dora. Photo by Matt

What’s our count? 84? Time to load em up. Before the tryptophan takes over.
Yes, Hessel again. From our beach.
Hessel. Sandy and Salty on our beach.
Hessle (misspelled it just for Matt). My wife, Sarah, on the SUP. Don’t ask me how this photo happened. Way cool to see the sun pouring into the lake.
Somewhere in Michigan’s Eastern U.P. (Ok, ok, it’s Hessel.)
And this one from Lake Mohawk
