Sunrise 5:47: Spring ends

Today is the last day of Spring. It matters to the female Dawn Jogger because she knows she can no longer look forward to earlier sunrises.

So that in a month, she'll be seeing the sun actually rise as she heads up the Dish on the Wednesday Dish runs. It's always cheery to see the 'police cows' who were huddled along Alpine Road across from Piers Lane...
