Sunrise On The Water (Skywatch Friday)


We often take for granted the things that are around us, and staying at "Heartbreak Hill" as the locals call it, I stood in the centre of the road (on the roundabout) at 5.20AM dressed in trackies and a dorky hat to watch the sun rising. As the glow of a new dawn started, I forgot about the cold and watched entranced as the golden rays of a new sun slowly filled the sky. I wanted to hug that feeling to me and never let it go. And watching it brought tears to my eyes, it was such a beautiful sight to witness and ringing in my head came the words of John Denver who said it so much better.

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high.

If I had a day that I could give you
I'd give to you a day just like today
If I had a song that I could sing for you
I'd sing a song to make you feel this way.

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high.

If I had a tale that I could tell you
I'd tell a tale sure to make you smile
If I had a wish that I could wish for you
I'd make a wish for sunshine all the while.

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost all the time makes me high.

J Bar - it's one of the few sunrises I've seen, so it was pretty special.
