Sunrise . . . Sunset

Education & Training with Alan Kells School of Real Estate/Howard Hanna Real Estate

What better way to begin your day than sunrise on the beach.

And end your day on the beach with sunset.

Of course my favorite sun rises and sets over Lake Erie unless of course we are vacationing at Mayport Naval Station overlooking the Atlantic Ocean east of Jacksonville, Florida.

I see a lot of sunsets.  I sleep through a lot of sunrises because I'm simply not civil before sunrise.
