22nd August 2011
Its 7.30 am and I can already describe today as being a very frustrating one !. I checked the weather forecast late last night and it suggested a sunny day today with the weather deteriorating over the week. So I decided at about 12.30am that I would get up early for a sunrise. I had decided to travel to Crossmolina . So I sat into the car at 5.20 am turned the key and saw that the warning light for the diesel was on. It was on all day yesterday also and I had intended to get a fill up but forgot. This meant I would not make it to Crossmolina. So back into the house then decided I would take Patricias car, but could not find the keys . ( Yes I could have woken her to ask where they were, but would you !) Anyway by 5.50 I had given up, when I suddenly remembered there is a 24hour petrol station in Claremorris and I could still get a sunrise locally. So Off I headed, by now it was beginning to get bright and I could see it was cloudy. Got the diesel, ten minutes before sunrise but there was NO sign of the sun. Sunrise was due at 6.25, by 6.40 I was home with no pictures.

I am posting a picture taken two weeks ago on Old Head Beach. I was there for a sunrise, but like this morning it was very cloudy and infact was raining, the sun nearly burnt a hole in the clouds, but this was as good as it got before the disappeared altogether and was not seen again until the afternoon.
