As I Start My Day

As I start of my day
The only sounds
The sea as it meets the shore
Gulls calling
Above the protected bay

Outside calm waters
An adventure awaits
But for now
It’s peaceful
As I start my day

The above image is of Bowman Bay (Rosario Beach to the right and Deception Island in the distance) on 25 Sept 2021 as I waited for my group to arrive. No one else was around. It was peaceful and the perfect way to start my day of adventure in Deception Pass.
