WHERE IN THE WORLD IS SUPER MOON #3 ?


Everyone has been talking about 
SUPER MOON #3
so we set out to find this anomaly.


Look it isn't over there in Halifax,
I just see 2 bridges and high-rises.


Maybe it's down on the boardwalk in Eastern Passage


All these peeps seem to be throwing fish lines
out into the water trying to hook 
the SUPER MOON #3
(they better watch out because 
those 2 big huge orbs above them called bokeh
just might flatten them, I think.)
Do you think those are moons?


Far out into the still water
even Mr. Orangie wasn't able to help me,


it didn't matter how many times Jim threw him out there
No, SUPER MOON #3 was appearing.


I really think the fishers thought that their lines could catch the moon.



Even this zippy speed boat slipped by
and they said they couldn't find
SUPER MOON #3 either.
(Look behind you!)


So we decided to leave The Passage 
and all my new friends
 heading to Cow Bay
about a 15 minutes drive down the shoreline.


These birds were congregating on mass
over the water descending to the calmness and rocks below.
Do you see something faintly on the horizon?


Oh yes you do because I sure can!


SUPER MOON #3
being crushed by Jim.
He has awful big fingers to be able to do that,
don't you think?


The bay was absolutely still
as the moon slowly rose into our view.


Then this fellow appeared and stroked effortlessly across the bay
which is the ocean for those who may think this is a lake.
It ain't.


He had the entire place to himself.
He zenned on the water
unbeknownst to us
zenning on the shoreline
finally discovering our
SUPER MOON #3.

    1. It was such a treat to have peace and quiet for a change, because the city always has ambient noise for sure!

  6. Beautiful, a story in words and photos, your last one is competition worthy, I'll send you a link for one. Sophie, your super moon did show up, all you needed to do was look in another place, so stunning in its beauty. Cheers,Jean. p.s. the super moon almost outshone Mr Orangie in brightness.

    1. Oh thanks Jean, I will check out the site you sent me re: photos.

      I sure hope Hugh is feeling better. Not having a good night's sleep can really make a bear out of some one.

      Cheers!

    1. It seems to be easy to crush Mr. Moon.

      I've seem others attempt this monumental endeavour too!!

  11. Of course I thought of "Monty Python" when I saw Jim crushing the moon.

    Lovely to see you venturing down my neck of the woods. Have you strolled down the "new" boardwalk at Flag Pond to the surfers beach ?

    1. No Sybil, we haven't discovered the "new|" boardwalk to the surfers beach.

      Exactly where is it and how to you get there??

  12. Hi Y'all!

    Loved seeing it Sophie! We were at the shore for 1 and 2 and it rained both nights, so no moon shot. In the mountains for this one it was cloudy and the moon didn't clear the mountain 'til after my Humans were asleep. All was not lost though! My Human gets up early to let me make a pee run while she gets the coffee water started. She took the camera outside and got some fantastic shots of the moon peakin' through the clouds before sinking behind Pumpkin Patch mountain.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    1. Pumpkin Patch Mtn located in North Carolina according to the map looks mighty fascinatin'!!!!

      This moon was so cool this month, well the air was cool too, LOL!!

      Red red sunset the next night, no moon for us to see!

  13. What awesome photos! You saw the Super Moon! We didn't - maybe because you crushed it ;)

    Seriously, the photos are outstanding, so peaceful and beautiful.

  15. Wow! I thought I had read this post and discovered I hadn't. And it is awesome! I was so focused on watching that SUPer that I could hardly glance at that beautiful moon. Love your humor regarding the hexagonal sun spots and Jim crushing the super moon, Sophie! Loved you focus heading on the hunt too. So many great photos, but the last was spectacular! May I snatch a copy of it, so I can park it on my desktop and look at it when I need inspiration? We're fogged in this morning ~ really! LOL! Have an awesome day, you three!

    1. By all means Louise, I desktop (verb) my pics too so they are the first thing I see when I turn on the laptop.

      Jim and Sophie header above, has just come off my desktop and I put up the clematis I played with on PhotoShop last week.

      I get so intrigued with the detail and seeing it on the desktop just puts a smile on my face.

      This fellow was at such peace gliding along the still waters. I'm always amazed at how still the ocean can be some times. We noticed a very still LTown Beach waters a few weeks ago and I was agog!

      Take care and we have fog today too!
