A Tuxis Sunrise
The 5am wakeup comes early. Even after bundling up with several layers, fingers start to go numb quickly. I ask myself why I'm even here at this crazy hour chasing the light. But then a four-legged stranger comes over, tail wagging, curious about what I'm doing. The coffee starts to slowly warm things up. And then, it happens. That's when I realize why I'm here, and how fortunate I am to be able to take in this scene. It's a beautiful feeling - hearing the surf pounding against the rocks, feeling the wind howling, and watching the sun rise over Tuxis Island.
