Sunrise over Barnegat Bay


I am convinced that my dog believes my husband's name is He Who Must Not Be Awakened. If she has to go out in the early morning or the middle of the night, she cries and whimpers at me.  This morning at 5 am, that's exactly what happened. I woke up without having slept away the stress and tension of the past few days.  My dog, Chi, didn't seem to care. She nudged me down the stairs and ignored my grumbles.
But... I opened up the front door and I saw the sunrise.  I even walked down the street to take a picture -- and I did this pre-coffee.
The picture is dark, but if you look carefully you can see the sea grass in the front, the Barnegat Bay in the middle. And way up at the top, there's a morning star.
Current status: Me: Awake and drinking copious amounts of caffeine.
                          Chi: Sound asleep.

Ritch, I think it was your sunset pictures that inspired me.

Our pets aren't so dumb, yes? Lovely picture. I especially like the hint of light on the grass in the foreground.

MG, I know I'm reading into this, but when we walked down to the end of the street, Chi appeared to be very proud of herself. It was probably because she thought she taught her human a new trick -- how to go for a walk at 5 am. But I'd like to think that she knew about the sunrise.
