Those of my generation know that the title for this post is also the title for the title track of the Doors third album “Waiting for the Sun.” They sing
At first flash of Eden, we race down to the sea.
Standing there on Freedom’s Shore.
Waiting for the Sun, etc. etc. etc.
And, this photo does little to reflect those lyrics. But I did take this photo early in the morning one day, well before the crowds arrived on the beach and a little before the sun came out from behind the bank of clouds that typically hovers over the eastern horizon off the shores of the Yucatan Peninsula.
