Yesterday morning proved to be a rude awakening as we hit the road at 4:30 AM. It took a while to gather myself, but I did it. Hubby was off to the airport so I thought I’d spend the early morning hours in Downtown, San Diego.
I stopped at a nice little park and sat in my car enjoying this view (for the most part) ’til the light broke.
I moved the car to enjoy another view while it was still too dark for me to be out roaming the streets alone.
When I stopped to take this shot (still inside the car) the security guard stopped to ask if I was ok. He prolly thought I was a dork or a crazy person or both.
The early morning hours are magical.
Ah, finally just before 6 AM I was able to comfortably get out of my car and feel safe to start my adventure.
Follow along if you want to see the good, the bad and the ugly.
But for now, it was all good.
I walked the streets of Seaport Village.
This is what is called the Seaport Cookie Company. Although the doors aren’t open, they are certainly well on their way.
It’s such a fun village.
And charming to be sure.
Restaurants were so quiet at 6 AM.
As well as the little streets and shops.
Here’s where I make a great big fuss. It’s still all good, nothing bad yet.
And the fuss about this picture is the sunrise! I like the camera setting and the way the sun appears to be squeezing in between the buildings. And those golden sun drops, oh the golden sun drops, love them.
Loved everything about watching the sunrise between the buildings.
The stroll continues…
And this is the part that starts to change. I think I lingered in and around this little pond a bit too long.
Once upon a time there were 5 baby ducks. And now there are 3. How do I know? Continue on if you must, to see the bad and the ugly.
I witnessed the kidnaping of two, yes I did.
The mean Black Crowned Night Heron, he’s responsible. But I guess that’s the way the circle of life goes round. But…but…where was the momma duck? That’s what I want to know…Ok, the bad and the ugly is over and that’s all I have to say about that.
The cool feature about him is that he/she can really stick out that neck.
See how short the neck looks in this pic? Interesting…
I moved along…
And enjoyed the splash of color along the way.
Somebody musta ordered a rather large order of pineapple. Ya think? Loved watching this shipment head out to sea.
And I conclude that the hours spent here was just what I needed after saying goodbye to hubby. I miss him and things are never the same when he’s away. The plan is to keep myself busy, that always helps.
Till next time…
