A Different Sunrise at Gooseberry

The sky at nautical dawn
Since I had to get my grandson to work before 6 AM, after I dropped him off I travel down to Gooseberry to see what the sunrise would be like. There were clouds in the sky and as nautical dawn started there was a nice red streak at the horizon. As time progressed toward sunrise the sky brightened and we had different colors in the sky and prior to sunrise the sky turned more orange and there was even a hint of a sun pillar. However, adjusted sunrise the clouds thickened and we lost all the the yellow, orange and red colors and was left with various shades of blue and white. It shows you that never know what is going to happen. You just have to go with the flow.

The weather had a temperature of 50 with the wind blowing at 14 miles an hour and gusts up to 32 miles an hour making it colder than it actually was. Compared to two days ago the seas were basically, with no heavy waves breaking on the causeway.
