Nice.

Funny because the only times you actually see those mountains is at sunrise, or a stupidly clear day....

I was up on the roof yesterday, tried to get as high at possible to 'loose' the buildings. Managed to scrabble up unto the pergola...just wish I had factored in getting down again!!!

This one 5.12am

Looks like a good breeze also Duncan to say that it was 5am.

One of the things I miss from the Red Sea is not seeing those sunrises. Thanks for refreshing the memories.

It was blowing quite hard, my ciggies blew off the pergola and my plastic thermos coffee cup blew over.....but then it is Nabq 'The windy city....!' Its usually windy in the morning and dies down in the afternoon.
