Out on the Sandbar

I was able to walk out about 50 yards out to the Atlantic Ocean this morning on a sandbar remaining from low tide. A few minutes before sunrise I had to return to the beach as the tide was coming in and it was too cold to be out with wet feet.

Long before the sun reached the horizon a beam of light brightened the sky.

Glowing Clouds and Wet Feet

I am grateful for each day I can start at the ocean with the early morning light. It was one of those mornings when I couldn’t seem to get close enough to take it all in and got a good foot soak as I took these photos.

First Glimpse of the Sun

Feels Like October

It was a perfect morning to wear a hoodie and sweats and feel the cold sand on my bare feet. I have been waiting a while for this.

Clouds on the Horizon

Sunbeams did not appear until after the sun rose well over the horizon. That, too, was worth the wait.

Morning Coffee at Nauset Beach

It certainly was a very calm way to start the day. The sun had not risen from the heavy cloud bank on the horizon. And the colors of the pastel clouds and multi toned sand with the dancing beach grass all did their morning thing.
