Keith H. mentioned that he’d like to visit the Cocoa Pier. I hadn’t been in a while and when I checked The Photographer’s Ephemeris, it looked like the sun would rise lined up pretty well with the Pier this week, so we decided to go over.

A quick, but fun photo excursion.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go make some photos!
