Sunday Morning Sunrise and Sunset in San Diego

By Murad Abel
San Diego has been considered a beach goers paradise for a long time and attracts a motivated crew of followers. With its warm beaches and surf friendly waves few can deny the tropical benefits of living locally. Above all the positive things one could say about San Diego one cannot argue with the beauty of the rocky hills, cliffs, oceans, beaches, and mountains. Almost no place on earth can beat the sunrises and sunsets.

If you have ever sat on the beach in the early evening after frequenting one of the many restaurants you will know what I mean. The weather will be in the mid 60's as the sun makes it way past the horizon. The smell of the ocean seaweed and the sound of the gulls will be apparent as the sun pulls its cover for one more night.

To commemorate the event I like to write poems or paint pictures. I believe it is important to keep in touch with one's artistic side and expression of life to ensure that we stay grounded to some of the more important things in life. All too often we get stuck in a routine of making money, accomplishing some business goal, or chasing some prestige building event but forget the simple things.

Those simple things are all around us; the sunrise and sunset being just some of those things. Perhaps you might enjoy hiking in the mountains or taking a canoe trip. For others it may be throwing a fishing line in the water at the end or sitting on the patio of one of their favorite restaurants.

Sunday Morning Sunrise

Sunday morning sunrise,
bright lights through hazy fog.

A day of whistling disposition,
A happy song of renewal.

Marking the start of a day,
A sunny season of starlight streams.

Colored fingers that stretch to night.
Overcome by a lack of sight.

The fog rolls and tucks in,
The same as the day before.

Shelter Island Offers Bay Sights and a San Diego Experience

Click To Purchase San Diego Sailing from Dr. Murad Abel

Shelter Island was built more than 50 years ago to handle the needs of large Navy ships (1). In modern times, it caters to restaurants, spas, businesses, boutiques, hotels and marinas. Originally a sand bank that was partially covered by water it was built up to 7 feet above high tide (2). Businesses lease this property from the Port of San Diego. 

The amenities its offers are many which include a park, boat launch, fire rings, fishing pier, picnic tables, telephones, and more (3). Of particular interest are the art pieces and local vendors sell right on the grass. The view is spectacular and you can get some of the best skyline shots of the city here. You can also see some of the sculptures and gawk at the 100’s of boats.
