up early

3rd December 2019, Embleton Bay, 7am

Daisy was up at 6am with a rumbly tummy and wouldn't settle so I decided to head North to the old stamping grounds in good time for sunrise.

Being back here made her, and me, feel better and it was a gorgeous sunrise from half an hour before dawn to well after the sun broke the horizon.

Must be Christmas

30th November 2019, Simonside, 9am

Not by the sea but you can see the sea...

A gorgeous, clear and frosty morning.

This tree is decorated every Christmas by a family in memory of their son.  They had just finished as we walked up to the tree...

Any hints of sunrise colour were quickly hidden by the next rain cloud. The result was a constantly changing view as we walked along.

On a changeable morning like today you can't take your eyes off the sky for a minute for fear of missing some passing dramatic light. Sunrise was a non-event but eventually the sun appeared above the clouds and the seascape was transformed. The rolling waves that had been grey a few seconds before were backlit and the spray glowed in the morning sun. Just a few minutes later and the next cloud rolled in and the sea returned to grey.

grey but no fog

The grey weather continues but at least the coast is free of the thick fog further inland.

dawn trees

Pre-dawn skies promise another nice day.

from dawn to dusk

A new path on a lovely frosty morning.  We walked for 6 km through autumn leaves while Daisy watched out for squirrels.  There were plenty but sadly all grey.
