Summer Solstice, Castles in the Sand

Headed down the beach as the tide was coming in with a plan to view the full moon rising from the Cherry Grove Pier.  We got to the end of the pier just in time to see a lovely pale pink moon peaking up over the horizon to the east.  So beautiful and next to impossible to capture with nothing more than an iPhone camera.

On the walk back, the stars and planets started coming out – after identifying Mars, we used Star Maps to also identify Jupiter and Saturn.  I’m sure we also saw Venus and various constellations, but had by then put away the technology and were just taking it all in.
