Lunar Eclipse

Last night Bill got up at about 2:30AM and noticed that it was too dark for a full moon night.  Thinking that the clouds had thickened he went outside to check and discovered that the shadow of the earth was taking a large bite out of the moon!  He got me up and we both watched as the shadow of the earth moved across to moon and the stars came out bright like a new moon night.

The wind picked up just after sunset last night and blew most of the clouds away.  It also kept the bite-y insects off Lanikai.  Yesterday, having been a mostly cloudy day but calm, I enjoyed a nice kayak paddle in the late afternoon’s high tide exploring a lagoon that is dry at low tide.
