I'm not usually an early morning person. I used to be years and years ago, but not lately. I more of a night owl - this is when I come alive and function properly.
This morning was the first time in many years that I had gotten up before the sun. Not because I wanted to, but because I had to. I have since been tired and grumpy all day, but the one good thing about being up that early was watching the sun rise. Alone. On the beach.
A beautiful sight to see.
The next time I will be up and about on the beach that early will be in November. But I wont be alone. Our town is going to be over crowded with scientists, overseas visitors, athletes and just about every man and his dog for the Solar Eclipse.
I hope my spot on the beach will be there then for me!
