Nov. 22 sunrise over Atlantic

These birds were grouped together with the one flying in front of the rest. Like they were having a morning meeting...

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are gathered here today to discuss a matter that is rather important to the happiness of your day. Tourists are toys, great things to poop on, and they often carry food. You see that couple down there watching the sun come up. Make sure to fly right over their heads and circle around them. I think they have some breakfast. Check it out and let the others know.

After my fun watching the birds, it was time to watch what I got up so early for. As I sat there nestled in the sand with the wind cutting like a thousand razors through my hat and clothing, I felt incredible peace. After a few minutes, I didn't even notice the bitter cold because the view went right to my core.
At this point, I could start to feel the warmth of the sun.
One of the many flocks of birds flowing in formation overhead.
I've always wanted to do this...

Was this worth setting my alarm for 5:45 am? YES!!!!! Sitting on that beach, feeling the sand under me shift and move as I moved, running my fingers through the power soft grains, and watching the sun inspire the day was wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is now time to take a really hot bath, warm up, and go see some of the beach outside the city.


  1. Yeah, I totally agree!!!! Actually, everything on this trip fits that!!! I am glad you got to enjoy it with me!!!!

  2. Oh, crap, Esther, somehow when I posted my response, it deleted your comment.

    So everyone doesn't think I'm nuts, she said the only thing that would make this better is sharing it. Thank you for sharing it with us. Or something close to that.
