When was the last time you stopped, took a deep breath and watched the sunset? Sure you probably got up three mornings last week, strapped on your activewear and snapped a sneaky picture of the sun rising over the beach as you walk/jogged/pretended to do both whilst doing neither, but when was the last time you saw the sunset? I get it, it’s a busy time of day, especially in winter when the average sunset is around the 5 pm mark, but why not give it a crack this week?
Bridge in Carrington
You know the bridge that connects Carrington to the rest of the world? The one over the water that you’ve always thought about driving across? Do this, and soon. Better yet, walk over it, stop halfway and admire the sun setting over the water. Bliss.
See you can see the sunset over the water, it’s just a different body of water. Grab some chips, and the hand of someone you care about and slow life down a little.
Back of the Hill/Newcastle East
Especially in the current climate, I think finding quiet pockets in the city should be of upmost importance. Bonus points when you can see the sunset too. Why not walk up Church Street, or Brown Street, or for the very brave and active wear inclined, Wolfe street and admire the back end of the city.
Yes, get in your car, escape the hussle and every growing bussle, and drive (or walk wotever) up Mount Sugarloaf. When was the last time you went?
Out of the city
Speaking of out of the city. Go on, get. Find a place where you can see these things stuck in the sky called stars, settle in, watch the sunset, and escape the daily grind for a little while.
