Matira Beach sunset. The waves from the reef are just visible right at the horizon line.

Hi Barbara -Wow, this IS gorgeous - I love that Blue! What a wonderful sight this must have been to enjoy in person... And the sunset is spectacular there....Finally, was thinking about you last night as I watched MY Astro's Playing against YOUR Rangers...seriously I think it is going to be really cool to have both Texas teams in the same divisioon - two awesome teams and two really great and vibrant managers, -I have long admired Washington, I just think he is great and Porter with Houston really seems to have the guy's attention.. should be a lot of fun and big spirit builder for both teams' fans I think. Also, that division is a great division with other great teams - it ought to be a whole lotta fun this yea, r whoever comes out in top ...
