In the evening, we took a stroll at sunset along the local beach, the clouds had parted a little, but it was decidedly chilly, so we went back to the van. A good, but ordinary day.
We had only been back a few minutes when Gill noticed a purplish light behind the trees. It's a very shaded site, no real view. We toyed with the idea of going back out, decided we were settled for the night, but something made us change our mind.
