Last year I spent the morning of Boxing Day on the Rocks above Shelley Beach in Manly, NSW, Australia.  In Australia, Boxing Day is a federal public holiday. It’s a holiday that originated in Britain. It was a custom for tradespeople to collect “Christmas boxes” of money or presents on the first weekday after Christmas as thanks for good service throughout the year.

Today, I spent Boxing Day morning on the Rocks in Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park. Just like last year, a glorious sunrise was my Boxing Day gift. I’d be happy with the same gift every year.
