This morning when Charlie woke me up at the generous hour of 4:40am I felt more awake than usual. After all, she did give me an extra 25 minutes of sleep there.

Mike and I got up and headed to the beach for the sunrise.

I've lived within minutes, sometimes walking distance, of the beach my whole life.

Why haven't we done this sooner?!

This guy had the same idea.

But clearly his was more thought out.

He had a tripod with him. We didn't know what to expect. But then it happened.

The sun peaked up over the horizon.We couldn't help but to stare at its' beauty, but our eyes were paying for it. 

As we drove off feeling somewhat different than when we arrived, we declared we would be doing this more often.

Enjoy your Saturday!
