A wonderful sunrise in Swansboro

I decided to watch the sunrise from Swansboro this morning. It was a little nippy on the hands but I got some great pictures. My buddy the old Pelican was hanging around the dock with lots of friends. The pictures of the sun coming up over the White Oak River turned out really nice. This sunrise picture caught a flight of geese I believe. It was taken from the Swansboro Memorial park which made for an interesting shot itself.
I have found Swansboro a little more difficult to photograph than Beaufort. I think it may have something to do with the wide streets in Beaufort compared to the very narrow ones in Swansboro. I was hoping to have few cars on the streets this morning, but there were plenty including a truck towing a boat. If you know anything about Front Street in Swansboro, the last thing you want to drive there is a truck hauling a big skiff.
I did get a good early morning shot of Swansboro from close to the end of the bridge by Clyde Phillips.
I can offer no complaints on the weather. It certainly a nice day here on the coast and a taste of more good days to come I hope. I even wore shorts for part of the day. It was great to get back in uniform.
Late this afternoon while I was working in my office, I had to open the window to enjoy the cool breeze. Even the cat thought it was time to taste the fresh air.
