A beautiful start to our day. We're both up and about at five and enjoy an hours brisk walk down to the shore. The dog walkers routine of going for long walks at start and close of day is one that we will retain. This morning eight retired football coaches from Midland Texas ask us where they can get a cup of coffee. They take the news that nothing opens until six with something approaching the 'guess we gotta suffer' stoicism of the early Christian martyrs.
