Full Moon over the Bay tonight…

The tides are linked to the moon phases.  Whenever the moon is full or new we have greater extremes in water levels…which means we can walk further out on the bottom of the ocean and explore more distant tidal pools…and that high tide comes up further on shore, slowing our walks down to a careful stroll.

Did you read or hear that the ‘Supermoon’ Rises: Biggest Full Moon in 18 Years Occurs tonight?  We always enjoy amazing moon rises over Sears Island and tonight Steven and I are going to pull on our Bean Boots and raise a glass to the silvery orb…why Bean boots you ask?  Because mud season has begun and the roads and pathways through the campground are more like streams and paths of 2 inch goo…not a pretty time of the year…could be why I haven’t posted any pictures for you lately.

Here are two great links about the moon in general: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About the Moon and Supermoon Rises

In the meantime, Steven’s spending the day at Beekeeping Class and I’m working on the Fiber College class presentations for the website.  Last weekend we juried almost 100 classes and we’re getting ready to offer about 50 of them this September.
