The early 3:30 wake-up call.
The 2 hour drive in pitch blackness.
The faint color in the sky and the wisp of a cloud in the early dawn.
The cool ocean breeze on my face.
The feel of sand between my toes.
The buzz of bugs on my skin.
The lap of the waves under my feet.
The silhouettes of pelicans over the water.
The gradual awakening of day.
It was so good to be out with my camera!
Frequent readers of my blog will know where I headed next. Stay tuned! :)
