i have recently learned that the blue moon happens on new years eve only once every 19 years. that seemed like as good a good reason to celebrate as any. this photo is actually taken on the night before the full moon. a few pooches and myself went out for a cocktail, and i got the shot. the wierd part is that it actually looks blue! ...
then on the real night, december 31, it was so cloudy we couldnt see a moon at all. so pooch special k and i decided to make up our own.... its a blue disco ball ornament off of her christmas tree!
the close up shot got blurry but its still pretty. in the top shot you can see the tree line shadow in the background.
k had this idea to have a bonfire at the beach for new years. thats a great plan but its approximately 130 snow-covered steps down with a basket of dry wood and a bag of beverages.
the disco ball ended up falling in the fire after a bit but it was an honourable end i think.
theres our champagne with blue curacao on the snowy log. that bottle ended up falling off the log but we had 3 more.
i was having technical difficulties taking the photos....me at the top, then k
by venetian tradition, if you wear red panties new years eve, then burn them after midnight, the next year will bring good luck. ( im not sure if its that exactly, but close ) since i need all the luck i can get right now, we gave it a shot.
thats just cool
its probably hard to get the visual of all this, but after climbing down the beach stairs, the lake is right behind us. surprisingly, it is frozen quite far out already. well at least it looked that way in the dark.
