Surfer's Moon

Last Sunday we were fortunate enough to have clear skies for the supermoon.  While the scientists prefer the term "perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system", I think that we'll stick to supermoon as the much cooler way to refer to it. 

Super Moon!

Before the moon came up, Chris and I took some beers down to rocks in Queenscliff to watch the surfers putting on a show for us.  For several days we'd been having massive waves with the right wind conditions and all of the good surfers in town were definitely taking advantage.  
check out the hoard of people, how are there that may good surfers around??

pretty big waves today

 After the sun started down we headed over to the other side of the headlands to watch the moon rise over the ocean.

What a great way to wrap up a weekend.
