Sometimes it just stands out. Sometimes it is the first thing you see. And it is something that caught my eye immediately upon entering the beach. Nothing special about this lifeguard hut. Except that I caught the magic hour glow slowly disappearing right before my eyes as the sun was setting over the top of the hill behind my right shoulder. It was one of those moments where you just happen to be there to witness. The clear sky was slowly getting soaked in the sunset pink hue. The flag frozen in time against the blowing wind matched the color of the rescue can.
