“You’re ruining Marquette,” they say.

Ok, only a few people say that, and only a few of those people really mean it. I shared the Ore Dock sunrise post two days ago, and this morning, despite being a blustery cold morning, there were 27 cars and about 40 people at the Ore Dock hoping to see the sunrise. Inspiring people to get outside on during a blizzard is a darn good thing. It used to be something I wanted to keep a secret to myself, but joyful moments are best shared. I think I’ll bring a bunch of extra coffees and hot chocolates tomorrow.


Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
