early risers

this morning we set our alarms for 5:30. we had big morning plans.

we first stopped at our favorite donut shop, kane's, to get their famous goods 
and then we were off to the beach to watch the sunrise.

don't we look lovely when we roll right out of bed?... almost.

we sat on the wall, ate donuts, chatted about life, watched the seagulls fight over their breakfast, and witnessed the sky continuously change.  it was a pretty foggy morning, so we didn't see the sun creep up from the horizon like i had hoped, but it was a gorgeous moment all the same.
and now we have an excuse to do it again.

the fruits of my first panoramic attempts, i have some practice to do.

the sun eventually made its appearance in all it's glory and it was beautiful (the picture doesn't hardly do it justice).  for some reason i have been so in awe of the beauty in nature around me. the sky is especially fascinating.  fascinating and beautiful at every point of the day.  the clouds, the colors, the moon, the sun... i love it all. 

after we had our fill of the early morning beach, we came home, climbed back into bed, and slept for two more hours.  what an awesome morning?!
