Sunrise Over My Little Town!

These are for Annelisa, who has the best sun and sky shots in the world!






















These were all taken at 6:15 a.m. outside my summer bedroom on the outdoor 2nd storey balcony. Sipping coffee, I watched the sun trying to decide whether to come through or to let the day be cloudy. It was pretty indecisive there for a few minutes, but that's the last I saw of it!

gorgeous.

when we go to the beach, we get a gulf-front room w/a balcony and we invariably watch the sunrise and sunset over the water.

Wow! Time for the summer bedroom again! I can't believe it. It seems like only a few weeks has gone by since you said "Good bye" to it.
Ahh Spring again.
Lovely sunrise!
I was out in the garden for a little while today.
The daffodils are up and the narcisis are starting to bloom.
I am impressed by the green, and the low amount of lost plants this spring.
Here's to warm weather and fun times!

Wonderful Sunrise - can it be better to have breakfast outside again after a long winter? Nope?

Here it's very mild to be this time of year. 18-22 C each day for a week.

BTW: Hope to receive my WLAN modem in 2 weeks time. Then I have to check if it works or not. If not, I'll need an outdoor antenna.... It's anyway faster and cheaper than have another cable over the garden...
I comment between "chat"-messages at work...

Bob: Now that would be perfect! Thanks.

Barbara: It's nice at this time but it actually just looks out at the downtown parking lot! It was better before they built it...more trees!

Meno: Does a real one come earlier?!! Then I ain't never going to see it!

Lynn: Hey, Lynn! You've come alive! Me too! It was difficult in the winter. Isn't it nice how spring is slowly unfolding and we can savour it? Thanks for the visit.

twilite: Yep! It makes for a cheerful start!

Brooksba: me too! The magical sun! I think I do like sunsets more though.

Toraa: I love having coffee on this balcony at sunrise or at night or watching storms!
We're almost at the same temps as you guys.

Glad you're getting new computer stuff and that you're in your summer house...makes the drive worth it!

Croned is better than cloned! You crack me up!

I'm never up early enough for sunrise pictures. I could take some at sunset and say they were sunrise though. Who would know?

Really BEAUTIFUL pictures...I LOVE Sunrises & Sunsets....They are always interesting and never ever the same!

BTW: Yes! Those Lizards are not pets but all outside, here in Southern California....I probably have hundreds of them in my garden.

It is good to be alive!

Colleen: (I crack myself up too!)I have a hard time telling the difference sometimes too!

OldOLOTHills:Thanks! I love the sun too. 100's of lizards? Yikes! They look like mini iguanas...not exctly cute, but maybe they're good for the garden?!!


Gewels: Thanks! It is actually one of my favourite times of the day...the peace and quiet before the town wakes up and gets buzzing.

Ooo, thank you so much, MOI! I love the pics - and what an absolutely decadent way to start the day, watching a beautiful sunrise like this, sipping your coffee on a balcony facing it!!! Sounds and looks deliciously relaxing!

If I don't catch you before, have a lovely weekend! (off now to see Julia, so I imagine we'll be walking over the Southdowns in a short while :-) )

Oh, by the way, my daughter read in a book this morning 'necessity is the mother of invention' and would like to know if that's why you chose that name?!

Rapunzel: You would love this back summer bedroom where the sun shines on the bed in the morning!

Annelisa: You're so welcome! Hope I get some good sunsets soon! You no doubt will get some good pics on your walk on the Southdowns! Hope julia is doing okay.

I chose, "Mother of Invention" mostly because it sounded like me; a babe who invents and creates words and stories/poems, but this was also the name of a group/band that played in the 70's. I like the expression that your daughter found because it is just so true.

Have a great weekend and visit.

Mystic: Yes, it is in the pics but not so much in real life.

Richard: hey! I'm taking that as high praise! Hers are amazing! Yeah, the day was pretty good!
Thanks!
