Barry got some great photos last night of the full moon from our veranda. I couldn't pick just one, so I'll give you a series. It really was breathtaking.
We had a beautiful Harvest Moon last night over the Caribbean Sea. As the moon rose, the eastern sky glowed pink and lavender from the sunset. We could see the moon from inside our condo, but the view was even nicer out on the veranda.
The Harvest Moon is the full moon that falls nearest towards the autumnal equinox. According to Wikipedia, the Harvest Moon is also known as the Wine Moon, the Singing Moon, the Blue Corn Moon, and the Elk Call Moon. I had a glass of wine in its honor without even knowing this fact.
The photo below is now my laptop backdrop. The boat came zipping by at the perfect moment, and its rosy color complimented the sky.
Happy Autumn Equinox!
The full moon is absolutely gorgeous tonight over the Caribbean Sea. The breeze is from the ENE and perfect as well. Temperature is 83 degrees at 7:15 pm. This is October? Oooh yeah! Only thing not so perfect is my back, which I wrenched getting out of a swivel chair on Sunday night. I've been pretty much down for the count ever since, and have had to send Barry to town to run errands solo for the past two days. How I hate being on the injured reserve list, as I so enjoy our runs and bike rides. I've really never suffered from this sort of back pain before, which makes every movement a bit iffy, and occasionally has me wincing in pain. Even the pool has been a bit uncomfortable. Periodic icing has helped, though, so I am hoping I'll be mostly back to normal in a day or two.
