See a Spectacular Sunrise

Set your alarm a little bit earlier and see a sunrise! I really, really love sleeping in, but sometimes waking up for sunrise is worth it. Whenever I a place where I know the sunrise is going to be special I always make the effort to wake up and get out of bed. So far I haven't regretted it once. You don't have to be on top of a mountain or out at sea to enjoy a beautiful sunrise. Check online for the sunrise time in your area, wake up early, grab a thermos of hot chocolate or coffee, look to the east, and watch the world wake up. I have been lucky enough to see some pretty spectacular sunrises. Enjoy.

And that's your daily good thing.

Slow sunrise in Halong Bay, Vietnam. We didn't see the sun, the bay just slowly got brighter and brighter.

Cue the Sun.

Worth waking up for.
Special thanks to Fay Gordon for being the inspiration to go to Haleakala.
