The Start of a New Day



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

This seems to be an appropriate picture for my first post of a new year. I snapped this picture from the balcony of our room at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, as dawn broke on December 23.

Don't you just love the way there's light before the sun is actually up? I've always though that a poignant metaphor for hope.

George- what a nice image to start the year off with. I have been a bad blogger friend - and missed your last 3 posts - I really love the "Little River In the Smokies". I think you and your wife would be great tour guides- you always find the most beautiful spots! Blessings- teri

Yellow box: I THINK this is a power box for people to plug their power tools when they repair their boat. There were quite a few of them at different intervals.

Mornings belong to my bed, I won't tell you what time I woke up this morning. Thank you for your morning photo.
