It's fun when traveling to ask the angels for help in finding the perfect photos needed. The spirit of Christmas was in the air at St. Augustine Beach yesterday. Way out in the ocean, I thought I was seeing things when I spotted a red stocking cap in the surf. Zooming in with the magnification lens, it was a surfer in a Santa cap. Tis the season to be jolly...I laughed.
Uploading the photos later, I was amused to see him like an expectant elf paddling out to ride the big waves.
The next day, a photo op didn't look promising before sunrise. A light drizzle confirmed the weather forecast for rain today.
It's not everyday you're at the beach so Elliot and I hurried down to the empty shore hoping for a sunrise.
Before long, the sand, the surf, and the sea were diffused in a soft glow of pink.
And, the sun made a glorious debut, rising up to crown the day with Light. Like most things, if we can keep moving forward in joy, expecting the best, it will happen, eventually. But like that dedicated surfer, we have to be willing to paddle out to meet it.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and joyful blessings,
