"The Sun Also Rises"

Sorry about the plagerism.....

Sometimes when I'm wide awake in the early morning hours I hop on my trusty bike and ride the short mile and a quarter to the North Coast to witness the dawn of a new day....(Ooooo, another plagerism I think).








These little jaunts are almost always followed by a ride to the neighborhood diner for a nice hot breakfast.

Nice pics, Cranky.

The young ladies are wearing long sleeves. It must be getting cool up there.

Red sky in the morning--Shepherds warning- so I hope the rest of the day was fine too.

That's similar to the one I grew up with.
Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Red sky in morning, sailors take warning.
Great pictures.

Nice pictures, Cranky. This was a treat for me as I've rarely seen the sun rise, although there have been a number of times I was almost able to stay up for it.
