Sleep in or wake up early? What a question to have to ask on vacation! Of course sleeping in is preferable, right? We tend to think, oh, just let me get rested while I’m away, no need to get up early. But, then the tradeoff… missing beautiful shots of the sunrise. Maybe next year on vacation we’ll stay on a west-facing beach. 🙂 So while we were in Florida last week, I set my alarm for 6:30 one morning. When my alarm whent off, I jumped up to see what it looked like out our hotel window. The sky was dark red over the ocean, just beautiful. I had to get up! I got dressed in the pitch black (couldn’t even tell what I was putting on!) and headed out to get some shots of the sunrise. I loved being out there almost alone (yes some other crazy people were already out at 6:30). It was so peaceful and beautiful. Here are some of my shots. The lifeguard chair was the first thing I saw as I headed out. Who could resist that shot?
