Watching the Sun Rise Across the Bay
We were out early in the morning and by 6 a.m. we were sitting down above the beach ready to watch the sun appear on the horizon. We weren't disappointed. Within 5 minutes a bright pink glow appeared on the horizon across the bay. Barely a minute later the sun emerged, pink at first behind the thin low cloud, then rising above it to give a lovely golden glow, increasing in strength all the time and gradually forming a path of light on the water.
The pictures below were taken from the same place as those above, looking across Moelfre Bay and past the old Lifeboat House at Porth Neigwl.
Moelfre Beach and the Old Lifeboat House
After seeing the sunrise across the bay, we walked around the beach and up on to the coastal path. By now, the sun was casting a warm glow on to everything facing eastwards. The 4 photos below show Moelfre Beach.
A short distance along the coastal path, the Old Lifeboat House was almost completely silhouetted by the intensity of the rising sun.
The Dic Evans Memorial and the Lifeboat Station
Turning the corner behind the old lifeboat house, we had a clear view of the sun across the sea. The Seawatch Centre and the memorial sculpture of Dic Evans are nearby and the photos below show the memorial silhouetted by the rising sun as well as being bathed in the early morning sunlight.
Finally, Moelfre Lifeboat Station and views from around it. The last two pictures were taken either side of the Lifeboat Station, firstly looking back along the rocks and coastal path towards the village centre, and secondly the solitude of an early morning fisherman on the rocks towards Swnt.
