Moonrise Over Goat

Last week I shared what "second sunset" looks like as it climbs up the side of Goat Island. Goat Island is a big part of life at the float cabin. It is the first thing I see through by bedroom window in the morning and the last thing I see as I close the drapes on my front door at night.

Last night it was clear for a change, and I got a wonderful view of moonrise over the crest of Goat. There were just a few wisps of clouds hovering nearby.

Later in the evening, it clouded over again, but the bright moon still provided extra illumination through our windows. -- Margy

  4. That's cool that you are able to see and visit an island on your lake. I find it fun exploring small islands to see what it is that we can find and learn from. Nice moon.

  12. The moon photos are so beautiful - seems like the first full moon after the winter solstice is always lovely, intense, and so, so bright.
    Looking forward to seeing your slice of sky next Friday.
