Before the Sun Came Up in a Secluded Cove on San Juan Island, Washington    August, 2011
Before the Sun Came Up, San Juan Island Cove, Washington
My husband and I were beginning our 25th anniversary extravaganza trip starting at the San Juan Islands and heading for Lake Louise in Banff National Park, Canada and several other Canadian National Parks in the Canadian Rockies. On this leg of the trip we stayed with another couple, sort of soul mates, in a guest house at a private Cove in the San Juan Islands. I took this photo before the sun came up at the private beach down a winding pathway from the guest house where we were staying. Everyone else in our party was still sleeping, so I had this magical moment in the dawning of a beautiful day all to myself!
