Early morning at "Lonely Beach" on the island of Koh Chang in Thailand.
This is one of the reasons I've adopted the old man's retiree schedule of waking up at 6am. Aside from the occasional beach jogger, there's nary a soul in sight and the entire serene beach is mine without any of the tourist hordes borking up the scenery. On the down-side though, I generally miss out on night-happenings because I'm forced to retire at 10pm, just before my arthritis and hiatal hernial begin to kick in. Growing old isn't pretty, folks... at least in my case.
