The Ocean, A Beach: WPC

“Share your happy place” asked Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress.

A place you want to return to again and again. A favorite place.

Sunrise at a beach, the ocean waves rhythmic sound, and the added bonus – knitting and coffee.

Weekly Photo Challenge- GLOW created by Jen H. this week.

This photo glows to me. Here are Anna and Maura greeting the sun. (Unretouched image)

Just happened to have spent last weekend with the family at Carolina Beach, NC and we got up each morning to watch the sun rise .  One day was overcast but we enjoyed our early breakfast and waiting for the light to come.

The weekly photo challenge is Early Bird  The golden hour BEFORE sunrise.  This is just at the moment of sunrise on St. George Island State Park, Florida where I was visiting dear friends last summer.  The last morning we were there we drove and then walked to the end of the Island.  It was a beautiful sunrise.

Another early bird- in  a tidal pool, not at the State Park but by the house where we were staying.
