Mornings at the Beach

January 10, 2017

Betsy and I really enjoy our visits to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.  For the past few years we’ve been going in both May and early December.  (We can’t stay away from that delicious Calabash seafood for too long!)

Although the weather is usually warmer in May, we enjoy our December visits because we get a good view of the sunrise from the balcony of our room at the Islander Inn, as you can see from the photo above.

So, although we are on vacation, both Betsy and I make an attempt to get up each morning at sunrise.

On some mornings there is a thick bank of clouds on the horizon,

although patches of blue were often soon seen in other parts of the sky.

Some mornings all we could do was stand in awe at the beauty of God’s creation.
