Just a quick post to show a couple images I captured of the most recent (and biggest) supermoon. My mother knew I needed to get my photography juices flowing, so she offered to come up and watch the munchkins while the husband and I went out to howl at the moon...I mean take pictures. Yes, I suffered a little lens envy when I saw the gear another photographer at the same location was using, but I am pleased with the pictures I got with my little kit lens. It sure was fun to be out with my main squeeze! I had someone fun to enjoy the moon rise with, and it seems we rarely get opportunities to enjoy a moment between just the two of us.

How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Not much going on, but we did get to see a bear while hiking in the mountains!  It was just a young black bear, but we were so so excited!  We watched it climb up a skinny tree (and boy, they can climb extremely fast!), eat for a bit, and climb back down, then he lumbered away.  We were on guard in case Mother was nearby (a fellow hiker had said he had seen a cub and a mother), but she didn't make an appearance.  I'm so glad that not only did I get to see the bear, but all of my munchkins did too!
