By the light of the Silver Moon

Or blue moon as was the case last night. So wanna know what I did last night to see the blue moon? I went kayaking.

I know, hard to believe, isn't it? A city boy like me going on a moonlit kayak ride, but it's true.

In my (not often enough) quest to expand my horizons and try something different, I joined my friends George & Becca for an evening on the Piscataway Creek. They are one of those out-doorsy couples that love adventure and shun most contemporary living. (They don't even own a TV!)

But God love people like them in your life who help you see things in a different light... or moonlight in this case.

We headed out to southern Maryland last night after work for a 2 1/2 hour guided tour through the creek. Since no one else had shown up that evening, we had the guide to ourselves and she shared the history of the land, pointed out different birds & plants and just enjoyed the evening with us.

The highlight was sitting in the middle of this river, looking over the tree tops and watching this big orange ball rise over the horizon. It was incredibly romantic. Larry of course was home, snoozing in front of TV with a glass of wine, but I'm sure he felt the mood in between commericals.

The evening rated a perfect ten for experience and a perfect two for Percosets. I had no idea my body would hurt this badly afterward, but it was worth every stroke!

That sounds nice. We used to rent boats when we lived walking distance from Lake Washington. Never at night though, that would be really cool.

You never know. Larry might have been watching A River Runs Through It. It was like he was there with you. (Fight amongst yourselves over who would be Brad Pitt.)

I was playing softball that night in Va Beach. I was kind of mad I missed the moon rise as it was a perfect night to get some pictures. Been meaning to get out there for a year now. At least I did make it out for the red lunar eclipse, but the conditions were such that we didn't see the moon until the eclipse was over halfway over. I love swimming in the ocean with a full moon. Erie and magical at the same time. I hadn't thought of kayaking at night, but I'll have to do that sometime soon!

Man! I was stuck in rainy Chicago that night. But how cool that Becca and George are now married!
