Birthday Sunrise in Wrightsville
For my birthday I asked for one thing (you know besides celebrating all month long – mentioned here). I wanted to watch the sunrise over the Susquehanna. And it worked out perfectly that my birthday happened to be over a weekend. So I got the hubs to agree. There was just one catch: it was the morning of Daylight Savings.
Somehow we made it just in time. Sort of in time. We went to Heritage Highpoint park (previously blogged about here), where there is a winding mile-long trail up to the top of a hill overlooking the Susquehanna. Or you can run straight up in grown-over-half-a-foot-high grass like we did. Because this was happening:
We missed the first part of the sunrise. It was already more than a third over the horizon.
I ran my little heart out to get to the top, the hubs cheering me on all Rocky-esque. My prize:
My favorite was after the sun was over the horizon, with it’s rays beaming on the building where we were married (which I recapped here), the Rotunda at Lauxmont Farms.
My guys were also enjoying the sunrise.
I believe they were thinking, “Hmm…we would look pretty cool as silhouettes running around in the sunrise.”
But my favorite pics of all weren’t of the sunrise.
Did somebody say bacon?
To get these I may have been tackled a few times. With kisses. He cracks me up. So worth it.
And the hubs even agreed it was worth it to get up and enjoy the sunrise. He even said he wanted to do it again. Of course he did take a three hour nap when we got home. But I’ll take it. Happy birthday to me
