On Sunday I was whisked away to the Raddison Hotel as part of our Ruby Wedding anniversary celebrations and from the 18th floor I watched the sunrise while enjoying my first cuppa. As the sun peeped over the horizon I thought could it be that time of year? I checked my watch 7.22am and on Tuesday morning I was on the beach at 7.15am waiting with my camera. Eureka! This was my reward!
I was overjoyed to see the sun appear over the sea framed by the rock as it has been doing since the beginning of time. Kneeling on the sand I was almost knocked over by 2 dogs who thought it was play time - their owner came to apologise and when I showed her what I was looking at - she was also astounded by its beauty. "WOW!"
I can understand how in ancient times Pagans and Druids were mesmerised by the spectacle of the sun appearing in a specific place - it appeared to be an amazing illusion that only an almighty spirit could conjure up. Unlike them I was not driven to make a sacrifice - I had after all sacrificed my late lie-in bed on a day off! Everything comes to she who waits. By 7.30 the sun was high in the sky and I was one happy lady. What a great start to the day!!!
