This is the backyard of Sunset Grille, a restaurant in LA. You know, Lower Alabama. Well, Perdido Key to be exact. They have this ridiculous view overlooking Perdido Bay.
Surprisingly, I came across an image on Urban Spoon that documented this vistas and was immediately hooked! A visitor of the restaurant had snapped some shots while stuffing their face with the ‘catch of the day’. I wanted to indulge in that same experience in person.
I traveled 30 minutes west to this restaurant during sunset. The restaurant is connected to a boardwalk where the public can enjoy this view but not have to eat at the restaurant. I happened to be one of those persons. To arrive on a particular sunset like this was nothing short of good timing!
There were tons of people with me on the boardwalk! I met a couple other creatives who were capturing images and playing around with different angles. This little island is so intriguing. For some reason I imagined swimming over there and discovering new plant species and fossils.
