Beach reading: The ocean, the sun setting making the sky glow orange and pink

Blake took them to a restaurant right off the water on the edge of the cove. From the table where they sat, they could look out over the water. She saw there was a small island in the middle of the bay.
“That island? Does anyone live on it? And what are those animals that are all over the beach?”
“No one lives on the island. It is mostly just rock and uninhabitable. And those animals are sea lions. They come and park themselves on the beach and bark at anything and everything.”
“This is beautiful. The ocean, the sun setting making the sky glow orange and pink. I love the view.”
“As do I.” 
His voice was deep and soft with a timbre that caressed her. She looked up and found him watching her. Her cheeks heated and she glanced away, curious over this reaction.
“Wait until you see the view from my, soon to be our, garden,” he continued. “It looks out over the city. Quite lovely, especially at night, when all the light from the gas lamps lining the streets is visible.”
