It felt like a little adventure to be wandering downtown before the rest of the city woke up. Luckily I have a friend who doesn’t think I’m crazy when I say I’m on a mission to see the sunrise, so I had great company (thanks, Young!). The morning rain paused just long enough for the sun to make a cameo in between the clouds hogging the stage, and the soft glow on the Parliament buildings made the 4:30 alarm worth it (although I might only feel that way because I was able to have a nap later…). There are perks to early mornings. Here’s to summer sunrises.
