Sharon Simonin’s perfect starts with heading to the beach for some sunrise and bird photos. —Taylor Achin

My idea of a perfect day is waking up earlier than everyone else in the house, grabbing a coffee, and taking a ride to the beach for some sunrise photos and bird pictures. Then back home before they even knew I was gone. After making some breakfast, I’ll get some things done around the house. Then off to relax at the beach once again with my family. We’ll come home and have a nice meal for dinner, with the windows open and fresh air blowing in. Maybe we’ll have a fire pit night, or I’ll just sit outdoors with my husband Carl, talking about anything. He still makes me laugh after all these years!
