It was one of those sunrises where I wished I could point the camera straight up and capture the entire sky! What an incredible sunrise! I did capture a good portion of it though… looking southeast over Battle Rock, the beach-waves-Pacific, Humbug Mountain, and the Coastal Range. Isn’t it grand?

Quote of the Day: “Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.” ~Og Mandino
