Full moonrise


The mystery of where along the ocean’s horizon the December moon would rise gripped the twelve of us up here this afternoon. It was more to the east than I expected. Ten left and now Tenzing and I are here with mats and pads in the lean-to, after consuming grilled fresh homemade kielbasa, rolls, and Gritty’s Christmas Ale. Hot drinks and Brad Bars for dessert. We’re very blessed to be here now.
