Sunrise at a respectable hour
It's finally September and we are rapidly losing daylight. Instead of waking up with the sun in my eyes at 5 AM, the sun is now coming up at a respectable hour - sometime after 7 AM. And it comes up 15 minutes later every week. It's getting to be my favorite time of the year.
Earlier this week I looked out the kitchen window and caught Zoya drinking her coffee and watching the sun rise out of the Gulf of Alaska.
At our house we only catch the sun rising out of the ocean in late August/early September, and then again in April. In summer it rises too far to the north and is blocked by Miller Point while in winter it rises too far to the east and is blocked by Spruce Cape. So this is the month to enjoy the sunrises.
