fullest of moons

as has been noted all over the interwebs there is currently an uber full moon: to celebrate, Kind Dog and i decided to go and watch the sunset and the moonrise at the beach down on the west coast - just over an hour's drive away.

point roadknight has some bizarrely beautiful rock formations of different kinds:

 Kind Dog gave a learned disquisition on the provenance of the various rocks and i listened appropriately meekly.
 i did however find out that while Kind Dog is endlessly patient and tolerant of my textile art related quirks, he firmly drew the line at bringing back this splendid but too recently deceased crab. so i have to be content with a photo....
the tide was out
and the beach was surprisingly empty.

we had stopped at the anglesea supermarket and bought a scratch but satisfactory picnic and had impromptu cheese club on the beach. 
after a rather blusterous walk up to the point we sheltered behind the rocks and watched the moon come up. 
 the photos are not as spectacular as the real thing - i used my phone rather than lugging my camera along. as part of the complete world reversal of the last few months, i have been taking fewer and fewer photos - choosing instead to enjoy the moment rather than filter it through a lens. this does make for less interesting blog posts, i'm afraid, but a more interesting life.

Good to know you're having fun and still checking out the moon now and then. Loved the rocks.

We had a super moon as well which was stunning. I love the photo of the rocks showing the erosion.
