Winter in Vancouver: Sunrise on Sunset Beach

Winter Sunrise on the Sunset

I can’t be the only one to be wondering “Where the heck has 2015 gone??!” Exactly one year ago today, I was getting my office cleaned up and organized before leaving on my six-month sabbatical. In some ways, that day seems so long ago, yet the year has gone by in a blink of an eye! Is that the sign of getting older? I’m not sure. Regardless, we’re both excited for what 2016 will bring 🙂

We have been on vacation while Jonty’s brother was visiting for Christmas, and for the last few days the weather has been glorious! Clear skies have made for some cold days, but when playing the tourist in our own town, it’s much nicer to leave the umbrella at home in exchange for a toque and warm gloves.

The added bonus to the clear skies have been the superb sunrises!

We went to Sunset Beach for the sunrise (?!) a couple of weeks ago. Even though we were looking out to the west, the glow of the sunrise cast an almost ethereal light over the water – it was gorgeous and very calming!

I think we managed about 20 minutes before we decided a hot cup of coffee would be the next best decision 🙂

We hope you all have a safe and joyful evening tonight, as you ring in the New Year! Here’s to adventures in 2016 (and yes, the van is still supposed to be coming shortly)!

Happy New Year!
