Angels at the Beach | Siesta Key
The first time we experienced a sunset at Siesta Key was in 2009 and it was a powerful experience. Just before the sun sank below the horizon, a crowd of people appeared and hundreds of them stood by the water's edge to observe. This initial scene was captivating - knowing we shared a common experience - almost a primal calling - that drew all these people to the same place at the same time.
That experience was reminiscent of the scenes of all the angels congregating at sunset in the movie: City of Angels. with Nicolas Cage. To this day, the sunsets continue to repeat a similar, magical experience.
Siesta Key is a special, unique place - an energy vortex - where birds and humans and Angels intermingle all the time.
It is also the home of the ashes of a wonderful, beautiful, friend who shared this experience many times as a human - who now participates as an Angel.
If you are careful - and you pay attention - every now and again, you can catch a peripheral glimpse of someone standing next to you, or you can hear the murmur of a distant voice, laughing and sharing the magnificence of Siesta Key at sunset.
