It was cold and the chill in the air when I left the house before dawn made me think twice, as the memory of that warm bed that I left only minutes ago is still so vivid in my mind. After all, the spectacular sunrise I was hoping for might just elude me I kept telling myself. It was quite strange, because my head was saying "go back to bed" and the passion was saying just do it.
As I hooked up the Jet Ski the thought of standing in the cold water at the boat ramp unloading the Ski just didn't cut it I’m afraid, but unfortunately that’s just the way it is.
I’m on my way down the river towards the mouth and the cold air on my face had me once again thinking about that nice warm bed, what are you doing I kept asking myself, as the waves at the bar became clearer the more I approached as the cover of darkness was hindering my visibility.
As I cut through the waves and into Laguna Bay, the horizon was becoming more prominent with the sun slowly rising in the East. I turned off the Ski and prepared the camera hoping for something special but at the same time, not expecting too much.
By now I was standing up on the Jet Ski with the camera on, as the sun was probably only 3 or 4 minutes away from showing it's face. It was so tranquilly quiet and it seemed as though I had the whole of Laguna Bay to myself with not a sole in sight, well at least that's what I thought anyway.
The sun broke through and the thought of the warm bed had left my mind as the excitement was building towards another beautiful sunrise. I could hear the growing sound of an engine working hard it seemed, to get to its destination. I didn't look around because I was too focused on what was before me and then all of a sudden as though it had been scripted, this boat entered the frame and the rest is history!
All I kept thinking was how glad I was that I didn't go back to bed!
