You are right Susan, to be vague about the sunrise. It is a sunset we see. The island of Schiermonnikoog (meaning ‘Island of the Grey Monks’) lies North of the Netherlands. We are looking South-west, about two hours before the sun will set in the West. It is almost the golden hour. We walked after dinner to the dike and the little harbor, our favorite spot on the island, replete with dear memories, sad and happy.
