This weekend was Family Day Weekend in Ontario. I spent a nice, long weekend in the company of my Dad, Mom and 1/3 of the sisters up in Collingwood where my parents live. It was a gorgeous weekend! Quite a bit of snow fell on Friday night and Saturday morning but after that it was perfect. We spent the weekend doing crossword puzzles, scoping out good sales, watching movies and enjoying the fresh air outside.
I decided this weekend was the perfect weekend to watch the sunrise. Looking out the sunroom at my parents you are faced with a spectacular view. You can see both the bay and the mountains. It’s beautiful. On Sunday I woke up at the crack of dawn only to find that there was a thick layer of clouds and no sunrise to watch.
Monday was much better. At around 6:40 a line of orange appeared on the horizon. There were still clouds in the sky but they looked like curtains being pulled up to reveal a magnificent backdrop of pinks and orange. I cozied up with a cup of tea and watched until the fiery colours dispersed amongst the clouds. Gorgeous.
Unfortunately, the photos I took don’t do it justice.
What a great way to start the day! Do you ever just sit and watch the sunrise?
