Sunrise on the Beach-A Field Trip

We have been studying astronomy for science using Exploring Creation with Astronomy by Jeannie Fulbright and have learned some very interesting things about the universe.  One thing that we learned was that you could sometimes see Mercury at sunrise and sunset. Since we live so close to the ocean, a field trip to watch the sun rise sounded like a great idea!  I am thankful to my friend Lanaya Gore for suggesting the trip and letting us tag along.
The girls brought sketch pads and colored pencils to capture the moment.  

Significant cloud formations made for beautiful colors but obscured our potential view of mercury.

We searched for shells and shark's teeth and Lanaya read from the Psalms.  It was such a beautiful morning it was hard to leave. 

What better way to top it off, breakfast at the Golden Arches.


  1. I love the pictures! What a fun morning ~

  2. This was a lot of fun! Great pictures; I'm glad you brought your camera!
