Two views, one island today.
BroJoe caught the sun setting over the Pamlico sound yesterday evening and the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean today.
Sunrise over Nags Head Pier.
Set sun, looking over Pamlico Sound toward Manteo.
The Outer Banks are so narrow (3 miles at the widest point) that it’s possible to see both from the same vantage point. BroJoe likes to get up close, so there is nothing between him and the sun but water.
Sunrise at Wrightsville Beach as seen between the cracks of a lifeguard stand.
Would this be called the crack of dawn?
Golden fall flowers flock a path to the sea. Divine!
Better days are coming. They are called Saturday and Sunday.*

There is little chance that meteorologists can solve the mysteries of weather until they gain an understanding of the mutual attraction of rain and weekends. – Arnot Sheppard

. . . but look how calm the sea!
‘Tis the set of the sail that decides the goal, and not the storm of life.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
No one would have crossed the ocean if he could have gotten off the ship in the storm.
I once dated a weather girl, we talked up a storm.
Out beyond the darkness awaits the sun.
Calm sea today.
Nags Head Pier. No need to pull out the surfboards this morning.
Sunrise offered a very beautiful spectacle; the water was quite unruffled, but the motion communicated by the tides was so great that, although there was not a breath of air stirring, the sea heaved slowly with a grand and majestic motion.
The day got brighter, but there may be thunderstorms tomorrow. Someone always has the blues.

You play a ‘lowdown dirty shame slow and lonesome, my mama dead, my papa across the sea I ain’t dead but I’m just supposed to be’ blues. You can take that same blues, make it uptempo, a shuffle blues, that’s what rock n’ roll did with it. So blues ain’t going nowhere. Ain’t goin’ nowhere.
I don’t care how tragic your life: if you own even one computer, you cannot sing the blues. – Unknown
