Good Monday Morning

Paris is so far north, the first light on these shortest days of the year doesn’t arrive until after 8am, and the sun rose on the Eiffel Tower about 9am.  I love to watch the sunrise in Laguna, how the light changes, on the clouds, on the horizon.  What a treat to have the time to see it unfold from Trocadero this morning.  Just before 9am the air traffic really picks up, and here you can also see the airplane trails criss-crossing the sky~

In addition to some running around, errands and shopping, I’ve also had some good quiet time to write. This visit is much less rushed and stressful than others, because I’ve limited my agenda of what must get done, and now that everything is crossed off the list I can relax for two days before we head back to Beaune.

More from Paris later today; I wanted to show you the sun as it rose this beautiful day.

Wishing you a lovely Monday~

  3. Sunny days are so scarce in the winter I"ve never even caught a sunrise at 8a.m.! I love you photo this morning. I have a similar sunset sky on my blog now. We visited the rooftop of Galeries Layfayette in November and watched the sun set behind her. A sweet Paris moment.
