Start of a new day!

I made it to Hilton Head Island late last night and for some reason I just could not sleep. Some of you know this because I paid you a visit in the early hours of the morning. Don't you just hate the hours between midnight and 5am, when you know sleep is not going to happen and you just lie there? Well, I finally got up and decided to watch the sunrise this morning because well, I was awake. LOL I have never watched the sunrise only the sunsets and let me tell you, God puts on quite a show in the morning. I grabbed my Bible, my camera and cell phone and went down to the beach. First I called my sweetie, who I knew would be at work and told him what a site this was and then I took photos and had a quiet time with the Lord. It was worth not having any sleep. My sister and her friends have been here all week celebrating their 50th birthdays and they leave tomorrow and then my sweetie comes in. We are just going to relax and spend some time together. So now I am going to Starbucks and get a triple expresso. LOL
Enjoy the photos, if you click on them you should be able to see the sunrise better. This was just taken with my little Sony Cybershot DSC-170 but this is when I wish I had one of those really good digital cameras.

The fish were up and ready to greet me this morning too. Actually, they thought I had food for them. Have a great day!

Hi Joan,
I love the way you worded your comment about God putting on a show. I wish more people would take the time to realize the beauty He has created for us here on this earth. Have a wonderful time with hubby.
