Yesterday morning I was lucky enough (insert sarcasm) to drive my eldest daughter to work which meant I had to rise out of bed by 6 a.m. so we could leave by 6:40 a.m. Okay, I really did not have to rise forty minutes early except if you want me to function I need to have a minimum of one coffee in me, and since I was driving, coffee was mandatory. As it turned out, I had just enough time to make a second cup for my thermos.
It was still somewhat dark out when we left the house, but by the time I dropped her off, the sun was rising and it was beautiful. I don’t often get to see the sun rise, since I’m sleeping, so I stopped at our local park on the mountain brow. The view from Sam Lawrence can be breathtaking, you have a panoramic view of the city, the harbour, the Skyway Bridge, the Niagara escarpment, and on a clear day you can see the CN Tower in Toronto.
