What Time is Sunset Today?

There is a great website that will tell you what time sunrise and sunset occur here in Seattle (or wherever you are!)  We are making a picnic and heading down to Golden Gardens State Park, with that marvelous crescent shaped beach from which you can watch the boats in the bay, and the sun setting over the Olympics.  If we want to time it so we get a couple hours of daylight, a sunset, and an hour of stargazing before we head home to wash the sand off our feet, what time should we plan to arrive?  When do the garlic roasted potatos and fried chicken have to be packed and ready to go?  Today it appears that sunset is at 7:51 p.m., four minutes sooner than yesterday.  So… let’s get there around six and plan to leave at 9 or 9:30… better bring blankets as the breeze rises up in the evening across the water… stand by for photos!
