Friday morning, the morning of my last day of vacation care, I decided to enjoy the sunrise.
I thought I'd head up the hill ... close to home and a view I don't make use of enough, well not at that time of day.
I should have left home earlier but I ummed and ahhed for a bit because I had to go to work.
I have been looking after the school aged kids during their school holidays in the daycare center I work. It has certainly been a full on two weeks and one which I'm not sure I would have come out entirely sane without the lovely bus driver/ partner in child minding crime I had for most days. She was my bit of adult company. It was fun though and we were here, there and everywhere for the two weeks.
Crazy me was also doing my night work. I survived though.
And now even crazier me has agreed to a split shift tomorrow. The first starts at 5am for four or five hours and the next at 8pm for four hours. It is going to be a long day. At least I will have time for a nap.
So my morning lookout on Friday was on the Lake Morris Road or Copperlode Dam Road.
The golden light of the sunrise light the city up.
It also turned that waterfall near there into a golden falls. If only it was gold ... the things we could do with that.
It was surprisingly quiet up there. Usually I am up there in the evening and there are many people riding and walking up the hill along with the lazy sunset watchers like me who drive up.
Winter is looking good.
I was in shorts and a t-shirt and didn't even feel anything close to chilly.
Definitely the tropics.
Actually, winter has been very ... not winter like at all, even for here.
After my sunrise viewing I was ready to take on the day.
I am hoping to get out and about a little more this coming week.
I've decided I should put a house right in this spot so I can enjoy the view all the time. What do you think? I'm sure no one will mind if I take over the lookout and road.
I hope you've been having a great weekend and ...
have a great week!
