Sometimes we take the accessibility of the ocean for granted.
It’s a destination for a few too many people in the summer, too crowded, and too busy for me.
Although... I love the winter days when I can almost have the beach to myself.
The other morning I knew that we would have a spectacular sunrise, and I planned on hitting the beach and capturing it.
It was cold, pretty COLD, but beautiful.
There were some diehards determined to walk the pier, even if it was a bit too icy for many people.
I caught my breath just before it became icicles, as the rising sun tickled my face.
I had been seeking a bit of peace and quiet, but even the ducks were drowned out by the sounds of early morning construction workers trying to “get er done.” This seemed to be one guy’s favourite phrase, and believe me, if I had to work out there in the cold, dark morning, I too would be shouting “get er done” in the hopes of making the work day go faster.
Sound carries across the water, especially in the winter, and I felt sorry for the neighbouring condo dwellers woken up so early.
The sunrise should be a consolation though. Just imagine, every sunny morning for a week, waking to this.
Breathtaking view, and then...
“get er done.”
