Funny the sky was clear but I could not see the moon, only the Northern Star. As the walk progressed, the rabbits were busy grazing on the field and the dawn sky appeared gradually. It was filled with dark analogous colors that gradually turn to pastel colors. The sun rise was shielded by some low clouds over the horizon. The sun did not make its appearance until it was mid sky, by then is was a bright yellow sphere. The fog rolled in, but was quickly burnt off by the sun. Finished walking at 8:10 AM. Stretched and split stretch at the basketball court in the sunlight. The GED exam started at 8:00 AM. The stretch felt good, not so much aches and pain. Completed stretching at 9:10 AM.
