Sun, sand & salty sea

Tomorrow we are bundling the children in the car and heading off for a beach vacation. The holiday flat is on the 11th floor and the view is spectacular! These are pics of the sunrise I took, last time we were there. I love the last shot of the sun reflecting off the buildings, with the subdued colours of the clouds and the misty sea spray. Sigh, can't wait!
