Andy always gets up early and walks two miles while I sleep. This morning he rushed back into the motorhome and told me to get up quickly to go see the sunrise. I put on my clothes as fast as possible and we walked to the waterfront. The sun had already come up enough that most of the color was gone. I took about a dozen pictures, but none of them turned out well. Then, we were walking back to the motorhome when this cardinal perched on the overhead line. The low sun lit him up like a Christmas card.
There was also a dove nearby.
