The Graaff-Reinet church – looking rather ghostly

The last two months have been an absolute blur. Don’t ask me where it went, I just know it’s gone and I am exhausted.  But things are getting back to normal and hopefully I will get my blogging mojo back as well.  The pictures from our Graaff-Reinet weekend is lined up and just waiting for the words to be added.  In the meantime here is one I took of the Groot Kerk at the top of the main drag into through town taken after dark.  Looks kinda haunting, doesn’t it?

The Full Wolf Moon

 Oh wow, what a balmy evening we had tonight.  Popped out to try and cool down a bit earlier and snapped a photo of the full moon with my phone.  As I’m typing this now at 11:40 pm I am drying off after a light night swim.  And I’m still hot.  Tonight’s full moon by the way is called the Full Wolf Moon.  It’s a name given to the full moon of January by the Native American people long ago because amid the cold temperatures and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside the Native American villages. Cold temperatures and deep snow? Man, I feel like another quick swim…

Chokka boat lights off Seaview

Drama Princess went to sleep over at a friend’s house in Seaview a few nights ago.  We dropped her off a little late and it was dark by the time we got there.  I just love the view from Seaview over the ocean.  The bright lights are chokka boats fishing off the coast.  In the background are white and red lights.  The white lights is Jeffrey’s Bay while the red lights are from the JBay Wind Farm turbines.

Christmas full moon

We spent 10 days over the December holidays camping at Vloedbos Holiday Resort in the Overberg and I have a couple of days left before heading back to work on Monday.  So between chilling in the pool, keeping the KidZ busy and doing a few chores around the house, plus sleeping a little late for a change, I haven’t really done much blogging lately other than my daily posts on PE Daily Photo.  But  I think it’s time to start sharing with all of you again.
A few days before Christmas the KidZ noticed that the moon was starting to fill out and I decided to check when it was going to be full moon.  Turned out that it was full moon on Christmas Day. Interestingly the last time full moon fell on Christmas Day was back in 1977 and it won’t happen again until 2034.
