I woke up with midday alertness hours before my alarm clock goes off and hours before the sunrise on a Wednesday morning. I've been wanting to watch the sunrise on the Connecticut Coast for a long time now but it is.....difficult.....to wake up that early. Early enough for the hour long drive. But this was the perfect morning to do it. The sky was wonderful, colorful clouds, tranquil waters, and bright sunshine. I hope you can get a sense of the breathtaking earthly beauty and pure joy I felt being able to witness a sunrise like this. I truly felt lucky and blessed.
