Marvelous night for a moondance

Tonight was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!  I have lived here all of my 25 years and it was one of the most surreal and magical scenes that I have scene in a long time.  I headed down to the Pitt St. bridge around 6pm to meet a friend and take some pictures.  Now I am no pro with the camera, but I have been wanting to learn some new tricks and it just so happens that someone volunteered to help.  When we first got there it was a little crowded, but people were sifting out, slowly, but surely.  As soon as I hopped out of the car  I felt at ease.  The wind was blowing just the perfect amount and I can't even describe the smell.  It was the subtle pluff mud smell, not the overly strong kind.  The kind that you can breathe in all day long.  Those of you not from here will probably never understand it, but it is a good smell.  Plus the tide was roaring in.  High tide+sunset=my ALL time favorite part of the day.  The sun was still high so we just strolled and took some pics.  I know I say this all of the time, but I am so thankful to live here.  Seriously.  I literally just had to stop and breathe it all in.  All that was missing was a Blue Moon.  Next time...  We chatted until the sun decided to make it's quick descent under the horizon.  Lucky for you, I snapped a whole lot of pictures. 
 Here are a few of my favorites:

Here is when my favorite part happened.  The sun was setting pretty good and then we turned around and the biggest, fattest and most amazing moon was right on the other side waiting for us to give it some attention.  And we did.  It was so pretty.  I would go as far as to say magical.  I love a good moon.  Seriously.  I could look at the moon all night long.  There is something special about watching it rise, because it is still light out.  It's straight majestic.  Creation at it's best.  You can't not look at it and be amazed.  The pictures really don't do it any justice.  But I tried....Did I mention that I absolutely love it here??  Just wanted you to know.
Here are some moon shots that I love:

The whole time I was looking at the moon, I kept singing Van Morrison's "Moondance," because the moonlight was dancing across the water.  Sorry to get cheesy here, but it totally warrants it.  Wish you were there to see it too.  Awesome day.  I also got to go to Litchfield with some of my favorite people over the weekend.  We went to Anthro where I picked up a few lil trinkets....  Then I came home.  Watched a lot of 24 episodes with some of my favorite people.  Today is also THE BETH SIMMON'S 26th Birthday!!  Wahoo.  Happy B-day Beff.  I love you.  A whole lot.  So there you have it.  It was a good time.  Hope your weekend was good too:)
