Who wakes up at 6 a.m. to go watch the sunrise? My friend *Sparrow and he thought it was a great idea to drag me along.
First, I’ll have to put across the fact that I’m not a morning person – and having to do errands at 6a.m. that’s torture to me. Second, I’ve probably mentioned this before I have a love – hate relationship with the beach, if you make me swim we can’t be friends (I do know how to swim but I’m scared of the beach I guess that has to do with the millions documentary I’ve watched on what lies under the sea) I’m good hanging out on the shore collecting shells, taking pics and just chilling.
I wanted to try this but I didn’t want to wake up early. We had been planning for almost a year now but the thing is, he is either around when I’m not or vice versa. The fact that last week we were both at home at the same time we decided to take advantage of that. “Be Spontaineous Jade.” I kept telling myself.
After my 100+ peptalks I was able to syke myself and be out of bed and house by 7a.m. (Oh! C’mon you already knew that 6a.m. wouldn’t work for me)
We arrived at the beach at about 7:30a.m. and mehn! It was beautiful.
I loved the feel of how the sun peeked from the clouds, the smell of the sea -you could almost taste the saltiness just by taking a deep breath. Closing my eyes to listen to the waves was so calming and the best part… Wait for it… WE WERE THE ONLY ONES AT THE BEACH!
The people on boats that we could see from a far from the shore don’t count. It was a bit late so we didn’t get the full effect of sunrise just a bit but that was Okay everything turned out well.
*Sparrow is a photographer,so that meant strolling on the beach with my personal photographer. It felt like I was having a photoshoot which was amazing for me. We did some catching up (we hadn’t seen each other since January) we talked, laughed and I built a sand garage with my legs lol
It was fun having the beach to ourselves for a few hours then at some point he did go to swim and I did a bit of rock climbing but failed miserably
When people started coming at around 9a.m. we were happy to leave. I had a blast for sure and this is something I would definitely do again and this time round I will wake up early to experience the whole sunrise effect. I would recommend this to you guys, its so rejuvinating .
It doesn’t have to be the beach, just wake up early to watch the sunrise with a friend. Its worth it i promise!
PS: *Sparrow is not his real name.
Over To You …
Are you a morning person? Have you ever watched the sun rise or sun set?
