|“The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” ~John Muir
The Island left us a parting gift Monday morning. Her breathtaking landscape gave the sun just the right canvas to paint on. We watched huddled in sweatshirts as ever so slowly, a brightness appeared on the faded horizon. Instead of melting into the ocean as it does at sunset, the sun rose into the sky dripping its molten orange back into the blue water. Of course the birds were rejoicing the new day as well which added such a sweet melody to the glorious show! I thank God that I am an early riser!
We made a few more stops as we said goodbye to Beaufort and the surrounding area knowing full well that we would soon return!
