Jack’s the early bird…

Next morning it was still dark when I heard Jack moving around.

“What are you doing? Are you ok?” I asked. “I’m going to see the sun rise” he replied…

I just grunted and pulled the thick, soft duvet closer around my ears.

Later when he returned and showed me the photos I wished I’d made the effort.

Even though the weather forecast said only 6 degrees over night, because there wasn’t any wind and Jack had put warm clothes on he didn’t feel the cold, but was pleased to have warm porridge for breakfast.

Here are the photos Jack took of the sunrise…

The sun catches the peak of Mount Wellington. Is that some one paddling?

It must be a local to be paddling and to be wearing shorts as well...Mt Wellington looks like a miniature Uluru

They breed them tough down here, it must be a local to be paddling and to be wearing shorts as well…Mt Wellington looks like a miniature Uluru as it glows in the morning light.

    • I didn’t think they would get such beautiful sun rises as that here. Jack was really “chuffed” when he did the show and tell for me. I will pass on your comments

  8. Your early bird did really catch some great shots! i love the soft pink sky & ocean before the sun bursts. In the States, young people wear shorts all the time despite the temperature….looks the same there!
