In which there’s a sunrise

Sometimes you miss waking up early or staying up really late until the sky starts to brighten.

Sometimes you miss riding your bike across the playa in a race against time and light to make it to the Temple on time.

Sometimes you miss toasting the sunrise with champagne with lots of your crazy friends and a few new ones.

Sometimes you go ahead and recreate it on a beach in Seattle just because you can:

Thanks Mikey for organizing this! Totally worth the 5:50am wake up alarm on a Sunday.

In which there was a sunset boat ride

I came home the other day and Jeff wasn’t home. I called to check in and he said I wasn’t going to be happy with where he was.. My first though was that he was playing with our friend’s dog, and I was sad that I’d missed that. Instead he was on the boat, on a gorgeous Seattle evening with our friend Tom. I was seriously jealous until Tom said they could pick me up if I could drive down to the Huskie’s Stadium. Which I immediate hopped in the car and did. They picked me up off the UW boat dock and I got these pictures and a wonderful sunset in return. Thanks so much Tom!

Party of 40 some odd sailboats in the middle of Lake Union. Apparently they do this every Tuesday night.

In which I’m rewarded for an early morning

I loathe getting out of bed early, especially when that reason is to go work out in a gym. Give me a few more times to hit the snooze anytime! Though the other week I was rewarded a few days ago with a gorgeous sunrise over Lake Washington:

Which was present enough for the morning sweat, but then I rounded the corner on the way to work and I was rewarded further with this:

A double rainbow over the marina. Too gorgeous!

(the anticipation of another one of these had motivated me on several sleepy mornings to make it out there)
