Once in a Blue Moon

     A blue moon has nothing to do with color.  There are some atmospheric conditions, such as volcanic ash, that can cause a bluish tint, but the phrase "blue moon" refers to those rare occasions when there are two full moons in the same month.  The blue moon is the second one.  Tonight was just such an event.  Of course, it was also a Friday so there was the usual campground-wide happy hour where the campers bring an hors d'oeuvre and the campground provides beer and wine.  When the campground happy HOUR ended, a number of us adjourned to the Roths with some leftover snacks and a bottle of wine to continue the "discussion".  After a little silliness, someone spotted the moonrise.

     The folks occupying the waterfront sites suddenly got a lot of company.  I'm not sure why the moon and its reflection are different colors.  They were actually the same.  You've got to admit that this is a nice place to watch a full moon rise.
