A small group of us went to the beach the last two nights, at sunset, to watch the moon rise. On Saturday night we arrived just as the last sliver of the moon retreated behind a layer of clouds.
Even though it was overcast last night we went out again "just in case." We were rewarded with a spectacular sight. The huge, orange moon rose over the ocean, and cast its golden light upon us. Fortunately, one of our group, Abe, had his sophisticated camera...and knew how to use it. His photos were outstandingly beautiful, and he promised to send me one to share on our blog.
Unfortunately, he had some Internet connection issues last night. I should get the photos later today...and I will post them as soon as I do. They are worth waiting for, so check back later today!
