Temperature at dawn backslid fifteen degrees from yesterday, but the promise of a sunny day ahead neutralized the chill somewhat.
The weekend arrived on this mid-April Saturday with a spectacular sunrise that couldn’t have been predicted by the heavy cloud cover before first light. Once again, I am reminded that judgement based on first impressions, can very often be wrong.
As the sun rises earlier each day to the soundtrack of the morning guffaws of the returning laughing gulls, the chilly temperatures cannot stifle my enthusiasm for the approach of summer.
On a warm southerly breeze, the sunrise arrived today ahead of a cold front that promises another taste of winter at dawn tomorrow.
Ahead of the promise of temperatures in the mid-eighties, dawn arrived at fifty-one degrees today with the first sightings of dolphins feeding off the beach.
On this last day of April, standing on the shore at dawn with a gale blowing at my back, I finally feel like the winter has passed. Standing in the warming surf, with the sounds of summer song birds behind me and laughing gulls in view, I enjoyed the surround-sound symphony while the subtle scent of honeysuckle completed the full sensory experience.
