Nine years ago today in 2011, I found myself driving through an October snow shower on US 50 in the California Sierras, en route from San Francisco to Denver. Nine years ago! Time does fly.
It is 05:35 in the morning and the sun, directly behind me, is just peeking over the horizon. After several days of gray, cloudy weather, today’s quietly beautiful sunrise gave us a marvelous pastel blue sky and fleecy clouds.
Da Nang got a beautiful day yesterday (5 January) – blue sky and sun broken up by fleecy clouds, temperatures in the 70s. After days of gray clouds and rain, this was a much deserved beautiful day, I might add. A lot of people were out and about. A lot. This is a shot of the Son Tra peninsula taken from the Thuan Phuoc bridge at the mouth of the Han River where it spills into Da Nang Bay. I took a ride on Son Tra earlier in the day. The monkeys, for which Son Tra is famous, were apparently happy about the nice day also. Plenty of chattering and I saw several monkeys scurrying across the road, though I failed to get any photos. Alas, the nice day was a brief reprieve – raining again today.
