We spent a weekend up at Mt Tamborine and decided to get up early to see the sun rise. As it turned out, we were up before it rose and watched the sky slowly light up with pinks and blues, just before the sun rose above the horizon. It really was beautiful! Have you ever woken up early, just before the sun rises, to see this happen?
My sisters and I did that a couple of times when we were in high school/college, we used to live in Montreal. We actually went on top of a hill to enjoy the sunrise hues. It was lovely. Those memories are forever etched in my mind.
