#BlogFlash2012: 30 Days, 30 Prompts, 30 Posts: #7 – Sunset

Sunset in the desert, Jordan

This month Mr B and I are taking part in #BlogFlash2012, run by Terri Giuliano Long.

The idea is simple: 30 Days, 30 Prompts, 30 Posts. Every day there’s a new visual prompt and you have to produce 50-100 words on the theme. The beauty of it is, you can produce anything from a simple anecdote to a piece of flash fiction.

There’s also a Facebook page so you can follow along and swap links.

I am also taking part in NaBloPoMo August.


#BlogFlash2012: #7 Sunset


My happiest memory of watching the sunset came in May 2008 when I travelled alone to Singapore, New Zealand, Australia and Thailand. In Australia I had made it into the Northern Territory and had the privilege of watching the sunset at Ayers Rock or Uluru.

The tour company had set up orange juice and champagne for us at our vantage point. We were told to take a photo every 10 minutes as the rock face went through a myriad of beautiful colours as the sun’s rays fell on Ayers Rock. They were not wrong. Simply spectacular.




Like Dave, I have been thrilled to see some beautiful sunsets: Kenya, Sri Lanka, Ecuador. I have seen beautiful sunsets in all these places.

I’m sad that Dave and I don’t have shared memories of these beautiful sunsets, as they were before our time together. However, I look forward to the many sunsets we have ahead!

Here is a Jordan sunset:

What candy did you eat once that you wish you could get again?

Another question that’s got me stumped! However, you used to be able to get strips of bubblegum balls – I think it was called Rainbow gum – and that was always fun, colourful and – it seemed at the time – tasty. I’m not sure if my adult tastebuds would still be as wowed but it… but you never know!

  1. It's such a shame the two of you haven't experienced some of the fantastic sunsets together, but there's still plenty of time. I enjoyed reading your different experiences of sunsets – it reminded me of some of my own travels and the ones I'd seen. Thanks for taking me on a trip down memory lane!

  2. Such beautiful pieces, memories and such romance!! Even though you didn't share these beautiful moments, your converstions when you met must have been awesome; all the travelling you have both done and sharing the pics. Now you can create your own memories together with some more amazing adventures and sunsets. So romanitc. :-))

  3. I love how much the two of you have traveled! Now you just need to do it together :-) Lots of time for that though. Sunsets definitely enhance the experience of places.
