It was an incredible sunset which led to my friend Don Myers to comment “Evart has the best sunsets.” I thought to myself “that’s a pretty bold statement to make about a small town in northern Michigan”. But truth was I couldn’t argue with beauty of the western sky and I wouldn’t dare step on Don’s pride in his home town by disagreeing.
One evening three weeks later I sat on the porch of SpringHill’s Founders’ House talking with friends who were picking up their kids from camp the next day. As we talked I noticed the sky begin to turn orange and pink and I suggested we move around to the other side of the porch to watch the sun go down.
Once again Evart’s sunset was spectacular.
As we watched I shared the story of the sun setting before the fireworks and I told them Don’s statement “Evart has the best sunsets.”
After a few moments watching the sky my friend Dave Pendley said with a laugh “yep Evart and Hawaii have the best sunsets.”
We all smiled at Dave’s comment but I thought to myself “I’m not quite sure Don Myers would agree. But then again Don’s not from Hawaii.”
