After a very long stretch of gray & gloomy mornings… feels like a month or more… it was great to FINALLY get a sunrise this morning worth sharing! The first “real” sunrise of 2023!!!

A bit chilly & a bit cloudy… but eventually the sunrise made its morning appearance. Lighting the sky with pastel colors, then a shock of sun… before going back to basic grayness…which might just be what we get for the rest of the day?!

Sure, the temperature was pretty cold this morning, but without any wind at all… it actually felt wonderful! A nice sunrise along the lakefront without the biting winter winds?… I’ll take it!!!

Windy & surprisingly warm… one last day of Spring-like weather in the low 60’s! The sky was amazing & colorful as I tried to soak in every moment… for tomorrow the temps are supposed to drop as the rain moves in. Kinda felt like a little “warm bonus” sunrise ride this morning!!!

While the lunar eclipse was happening to the west… we still had a pretty nice sunrise popping up to the east. It was chilly & VERY windy!!! So it was tough riding into the wind… while watching both left & right. The sunrise was coming up… getting ready to breach the horizon… chilly… windy… waves crashing all around…

… and then my camera battery died! ugh.

Another morning with crisp weather & clear skies. Barely a cloud in the sky along the lakefront. Perfect to kick-off another week of beautiful Fall weather! It was a bit chillier than I expected though… gotta up my game tomorrow with some warmer gloves!!!

One hour earlier as we “fall back” today… but still a stunning sky show with a fluffy blanket of clouds blowing through to cover the morning sky.

Panoramic perfection from this morning’s bike ride.

Big morning sunrises require big morning photos!

It was a stunning sunrise this morning as the clouds were splashed with color. Ever-changing with saturated colors pedaling along the lakefront… before the grayness of the day moved in.
