There was a nice sunset here yesterday evening (Tuesday). It was followed by a nice display of the waxing gibbous moon. The full moon is on Thursday night and there is a fairly good forecast so anyone who likes a walk by moonlight should make plans to be free. It also will be a lovely night for canoing on the Blackwater for anyone so inclined. I shall have to skip paddling this time around but some of the nicest paddles that I have had in my canoe over the years has been by moonlight. I thoroughly recommend it.
