Sunrise with Mom

So, I’m enjoying the first moments of light on this gorgeous August morning, and I see this mother and what appears to be her ten year old son heading down the beach. She’s walking; he’s running. They get in the middle of my photo opportunity. I get irritated, for a minute, then I decide to just go with it. Here’s the story I made up about them. Notice how he moves back and forth across each picture.

Come on Son, let’s go watch the sunrise. But Mom, I’m tired…I don’t wanna….Oh, OK. Can I bring my bucket?

Hey Mom, look at those sand crabs! Yeah, son, cool. Look at the sun peaking over the water there.

Uh-huh. Hey, here’s another crab hole. I want to dig him out!

He must be in the other hole…Look, son. Look at the light on the water!

Hey, I just found an empty crab shell! Look Mom!…Yeah, nice son. Did you see that beautiful light shooting across the water right at you?

Wow! That’s beautiful Mom!…Can I get in the water now?

The End.
