Watching the Sun Come Up at Tybee

This guy was watching the sunset and enjoying it.
This horseshoe crab had just washed up.
The sun rose this morning at 6:16 a.m. and I was there at the Tybee Island pier waiting for it. So were quite a few others. It was a pretty dawn with clouds, dolphins, a Man o' War stranded on the beach, abandoned towels and beach toys, lots of plastic and foam contianers and a general glop of civilization's leavings.

Still, the beach at dawn is a special place, a quiet place even amid the people soaking up the scene. And there's the breakfast at the legendary (and expensive) Breakfast Club.

Here is some of what it looked like.
Soaking up a good book onthe beach just after sunrise.

Pelicans ready to dive.
A broken shovel abandoned.
Lovers in the surf at dawn.
Get your fishing tackle here on the pier.
Taking a little break from life to enjoy the sea.
Scanning for metal in the ruins of a sand fort.
A small city in the sand. Some kid had a good time with this.
