9-11 SUNRISE

Despite the terrible events of September 11th, twelve years ago, the sun rose on Coupeville and the rest of the United States of America.

I left early for my walk this morning because we had someone coming by the house at 8:00 so at 6:00 when I left it was still almost dark. About twenty minutes into my walk saw the sun was slowly lightning things up including Mt. Baker.

An hour later when I was out on the Ebey Prairie the sun was finally starting to peek over the Cascade Mountains. It’s really amazing how long it takes for the sun to actually rise here in the Northwest.

When I got back over to Penn Cove I could see the sun shinning on the west end of the cove.

When I got to the wharf it was really beautiful with the reflection of Coupeville in the still water and the dock that goes out to the wharf.

There were several boats anchored out in the cove which made for one last nice reflection photo.

What a beautiful place I live. It’s pretty hard not to be in awe of it all on a morning like this.
