As promised, a guest post from my husband, Richard. Enjoy!
First of all, a thank you to everyone who left me happy birthday wishes on Kay's blog. And secondly, a thank you to everyone who has complimented the photos I have taken that Kay has used on this blog. In all honesty all I have done is held the camera and the camera has done the rest. Of course, location is a large part of it and it's hard to take a bad photo at Stone Mountain or on the seafront at Eastbourne. And since we are talking about Eastbourne....
As some of you will know, Kay and I spent the night of June 4th at the DaVinci hotel in Eastbourne. On the following morning we were awakened at 3:30 by the racket the seagulls were making on the rooftops! By about 4 o'clock it was undeniably daylight! Kay went to the window and looked out and was amazed by the beautiful sight that greeted her - the pink of the dawn. I staggered reluctantly to the window and was also amazed at the beauty I beheld!
By 5 o'clock we were on the beach enjoying a most beautiful sunrise. Not surprisingly, there were not many other people around at that hour so we had all that beauty to ourselves. The seafront and most of Eastbourne- including this magnificent pier -we can thank the Victorians for.
We stayed on the beach enjoying this natural wonder for almost an hour though it seemed like only a few minutes. Then we returned to our room to make a nice cup of coffee. Here is a video that I took then which I hope you enjoy. My plan was to add a music track - but not the version with the orchestral prelude!!!! - to this video of a certain British band performing a track called "Dawn Is A Feeling" from their 1967 "debut" album, but owing to technical difficulties and the fact that Kay and I have been to both Stone Mountain and Arabia Mountain today, I regret that will not happen tonight. ( Unfortunately, there is no prize for anyone who knows which British band I am talking about but you will have our respect! )
Hope you enjoy these photos and the video which will always remind us of a beautiful day.
Take Care. Cheers, Richard
