Sunrise at Black Point - August 1, 2013

Pink sunrise
This morning, I traded my water shoes for my hiking shoes and went to catch the sunrise at Black Point.

I arrived just before sunrise and began my trek north along the shore.  Most of the southern coast of Narragansett is lined with a pretty pink granite known locally as Narragansett Pier granite.  Boulders of various sizes line the shore.  

I met a couple of fishermen along the way, but otherwise the morning was quiet.  About a 1/2 mile up the coast, I got a great view of the formal gardens and gatehouse at the Dunmere.  Dunmere was built in 1883 for Robert Dun of Dun & Bradstreet, and was one of several large estates that lined the coast along Ocean Road.  I hiked along the rocks for about a mile to Newton Avenue before walking back down Ocean Road to my car.

A little later it was a yellow sunrise
