SUPER MOON #2


Hi Folks!
Here we are at 9 p.m. catching the Super Moon!
The second one this summer too!
One more will grace our skies in September so be prepared.


Off to the east we catch a glimpse of the pink trail of folks flying 
to who knows where.


Can you imagine being up there and seeing this gorgeous moon tonight?
I can!


 Look at me everyone!
I'm "Mr.Orangie-less"!
The guys were all GaGa over the Super Moon
so forgot to bring "HIM" along.
Imagine that!


Oh well, I'll let it go this time
but next month 
Mr. Orangie
will be found snuggly
with in my clasp.


We slipped off the hill
and scooted down to the beach to see these two lovebirds
jumping off the lifeguard stand.


I sniffed around plenty and found seaweed and more rocks as usual.
Some people go GaGa over these rocks like you wouldn't believe.


Look 2 more lovebirds taking a selfie.


See what the Super Moon does to you without you realizing.


So with this all under our belts,
we headed back home and this greeted us as we walked into the living room.
Mother Nature!
You can be so beautiful 
in such a mysterious way.

    Oh, Sophie! Thank you! That was beautiful! So Beautiful!

    We didn't get to see either super moon. Both were rained out. Here in the south it rained all night.

    Y'all come by now,

    1. We were so lucky to capture all these photos and more because it was a spur of the moment decision to go down to the hill and beach. So glad we did. Now got me singing that song

  4. The Super Moon shone through my bedroom window all night! It didn't keep me up though. The road-paving crew who resurfaced the street beside my building ALL NIGHT did though. That's what I get for living beside a major thoroughfare, LOL!

    1. Re-surfacing is the scourge of everywhere it seems in the summer. Our neighbours, veterinarians decided to pave their parking lot which has been dirt since we moved here in 1990. So to make along story short ~~~ noise and smells ~~~ yuck and double yuck. Now we have to deal with a 2 inch paved curb next to our driveway which will never be paved.

      Jim said to me this morning "Did you see the toilet all lit up last night?"

      The Super Moon was shining through the window making the throne all glowing.... LOL!!

  5. Hi Sophie - the moon was beautiful here in Wales also. We had a very stormy 24 hours preceding it, with gales, hailstones, thunder and torrential rain. It was like a symbol of the storm ending and so very lovely. xxx

    1. Guess what Lily, we are having the same kind of weather ~~~ so unsettling it is ~~ hail in August ~~ so unusual!!!

      So glad the weather pattern changed and SUPER MOON was visible!!!

  6. Your photos are beautiful. Willy Dunne Wooters and I were out after dark and didn't see the moon at all. It must have been covered by thick, mean clouds.

    Love,
    Janie

  9. Wow!!! Your super moon framed by the trees, down here we had cloud, rain, drizzle and more cloud, so nothing spectacular at all. Will I wait till 2034??? There is another one in September. Super shots Ron, every one, and Sophie, you are right there too, a perfect model for any photographer. Cheers,Jean.

    1. September is only 1 month a way and then you'll be able to take your picture. I'm sure the "Clear Sky Gods" are listening to me now!!
