Sunrise in Varadero

Our last full day at the resort
I awoke before the sun

not wanting to wake Trev
I grabbed our towels to reserve our chairs
by the pool 

getting back to the room
he had woken up too
so I picked up my camera
and we headed down to the beach

I will be truthful with you
I have not seen the dawn very often
maybe in my late teens ~ early 20's
when I was just getting home after a night out!

it was peaceful
the beach was deserted
except for a couple of runners
and people walking

we took the obligatory beach shot
for our photo album

then just sat and took it all in

I am so glad that we were able to do this
it was romantic ~ peaceful
and time that I will cherish forever

it was the perfect way to conclude 
our vacation.

Happy Wednesday!
