Vernal Equinox Sunrise from the Cape Cod National Seashore

To celebrate the first full day of spring we took an early morning walk to catch first light. It was SO worth it!

Sunrise over Nauset Marsh looking east from Eastham to Coast Guard Beach from Hemenway landing in the Fort Hill Area, a short walk from the Fort Hill Bed and Breakfast.

Today is one of 2 days in the year that the sun rises due EAST...and when you are in Eastham on the eastern most edge of MA, that means the sunrises with all of America at your back!   From now until the solstice in June it starts it's journey NE along the horizon.
