Full Moon in Longbranch a Sublime Sight

The full moon rising over Mount Rainier and Anderson Island last night.
The full moon rising over Mount Rainier and Anderson Island last night.

We live in a wonderful part of the world.

From red sunrises to golden moonrises, pods of Orcas playing in our passages, birds bopping to squirrels screeching, the Key Peninsula is a paradise all our own.

My lovely bride and I waited for the moon to rise last night, anticipating a majestic show. We were not disappointed.

Just a few ticks past 8:20, the outline of an orange orb faintly appears north of Mount Rainier and just above the tree line on Anderson Island.

“There she is,” said my lovely bride. “Do you see it?”

Yes dear. It’s hard to miss such a sublime sight.

“This was the view out the plane window tonight flying home,” tweets Kim McNeill. “Thnx @dmontesino for sharing! I didn’t have a camera handy.”

The pleasure is all ours @joiedevivre9, and welcome home.

Good morning Longbranch.
