5am I leave my hotel, grab my camera bag and head to my favorite spot to watch the sunrise. Coral cove is pretty quite that time of day. I see a few other photographers, you know, the ones that actually know what they are doing, and I try to find a spot to set up. I click away as the sun comes up over the waters edge and think there is no other place in the world this beautiful right now. Nothing can makes these moments better. Everyday should start like this. At 6am I climb up the stairs and take one last picture, and it is then I realize that I have forgotten to change my camera settings. Thank god for coconut coffee.
On to the next adventure!! I paddle around jupiter inlet and I am still more excited than a 5 year old every time I see a starfish screaming and pointing them out to whoever will listen. I head out on the boat for some fishing and time one the water. Alas, I catch no fish but fun to see old stomping grounds as I pass by peanut island remembering how we partied too hard as kids and surprised none of us got lost as sea.
Back up to Jupiter for some fish tacos and homemade watermelon basil margaritas. No, I will not say where they are from, best kept secret in south Florida. That night I'm lucky enough to join another local photographer and go down to Flagler museum. The best part about this place is the huge banyan tree outside. I feel so bad for this guy, he spends so much time teaching me about my camera I'm afraid he won't actually get any shots of his own. Luckily, we both leave that night with some pretty good shots. I could put this day on repeat and never get tired of it.
