Burning Bright White

Now that it’s night, I can see that the shoreline running west from the gap has a boardwalk with dim orange lights that ends at a peer far west of us, but that’s all the lights I see. Well there’s a glow too. Where the boardwalk begins, almost at the gap, the shoreline curves out towards us and a bank of boulders encloses a small bay. Over the boulders I think I might see the flicker of fire light.

The biggest landmark in view is of course the skyline. It’s burning bright white and fiery orange behind the silhouetted trees and dimly lit boardwalk of the west-running shoreline.
