A Week In Sunrises

And so we did something almost unthinkable – we traveled. Abroad. For vacation.

The mere fact of normalcy – going on the family vacation – became “mission impossible” and unreal over the past year. In today’s world, it might be even considered an act of stupidity. Whatever. We still went to Cancun for a week.

Traveling with the mask is not fun, but it is still not something very difficult. At least the travel to Mexico on the plane was really uneventful. Coming back was borderline madness and exercise in patience, with the huge check-in line moving slower than a snail, and all the useless passport checks about nothing. The trip back almost negated the whole vacation, which was still … a vacation. Much needed vacation. An opportunity to lay under the sun and jump waves in the ocean. And experience beautiful sunrises.

When in Cancun, seeing the sun slowly rising above the horizon is one of my biggest pleasures. I’m happy to wake up early. This is my one on one time with Mother Nature.

This trip was not any different – 7 unique and different sunrises. Actually, even 8, as we were lucky to see one at JFK before our flight. Here they are, below, in chronological order, from Sunday to Sunday. Which one is your favorite?









There are way more experiences I want to share – and I even have a wine recommendation for you – so as they say, stay tuned…

    Great pics…. Envious of you being able to travel to another country. We are still only allowed to go on cruises to nowhere, ie Singapore to Singapore.

      Thanks. Mexico is open for us to travel. There are probably few other countries, not sure. You know how travel is, it was not always fun in the old days, and it is absolutely not fun now, but you can still deal with it. We also stayed at the big resort where they had rapid test done on site – requirement for entering the US. So outside of travel itself, it was a good experience.

    #6 but I also like #1 for its “heading to the airport early in the morning” quality.

      Excellent 🙂 Sunrise might be my favorite part of the day – the whole days is still ahead of you…

    All beautiful, but I love #5 with the combo of sun, clouds, and rippling waves. Well done!

      Thank you! Love sunsets and sunrises – and I’m glad I’m not using the old films for this as I would be killing a few rolls every time 🙂

      Thanks, Lori. This was not the most comfortable travel ever, but nevertheless, it was travel.
