You know, I was a little frustrated when my natural alarm clock woke me up at 6:15am. I was hoping to sleep in, waking up to the sun streaming in my windows. Old habits die hard. But I don't regret for a minute the delightful morning I would have missed if I had slept through the sunrise.

An Early-Morning Walk
“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.” These words of wisdom have been attributed to Henry David Thoreau. I tend to side with Henry on this one. I just returned from a beautiful walk down the beach. I was completely alone. But that really isn’t much of a surprise on a Wednesday morning in February. The sun was coming up, and it wasn’t as cold as I had expected. My sweatshirt met the need for warmth. It was low-tide so the broad expanse of wet firm sand made the walking easy. I brought my camera along.
