Scenic Sunday # 116: Golden Sunrise

Sunrise at Ormond Beach, Florida. August 5, 2009.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

We celebrated Betsy’s birthday last year by going to Ormond Beach, Florida.  We had a room that overlooked the ocean and got up early on the day of Betsy’s birthday to see the sunrise.  The sea was calm, and just before the sun popped out of the clouds offshore, the water took on a golden sheen.

All in all it was a great start to a special day for my special girl.

    Did you have to wake Betsy, or was she up by herself.It was beautiful and worthed waking up for.

    Once, when I was 12, my older sis and bro planned a mid night feast. When they woke me at 12 midnight, I won’t wake up. I didn’t want any mid night feast. But eventually I did, and I am glad I did. A good story to share with my grandchildren (when they come along)

    Beautiful! We have a connection to Ormond Beach, too! When youngest child had an internship at NASCAR in Daytona, we rented a condo for her in OB — on Kathy Drive and A1A! We really liked the community there and work was just a short drive away for her.
