It feels like fall today

 

60 % waxing gibbous, taken at 22:39:45 on the 29th of October

It rained all day on Sunday, which I did not mind so much because I was on call any way.  Toward the evening, it started clearing up.  Before calling it a night, I took my dog (Zika) for her evening walk.  The moon was spectacular.  It was at 60% waxing gibbous.  Okay, what does that mean?  To all you non-weather greeks that read my blog, the term “waxing” means getting bigger.  The term “gibbous” mean it is between half and full.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the AM, I decided to capture a sun rise at Taylor Creek in Beaufort, North Carolina.  I haven’t been down by the Boat House (a marina on Taylor Creek) all summer.  Usually, I luanch my kayak from that location  and pad around Carrot Island.

The temperature felt more like fall.  It was brisk 42 degree in the morning.  I was surprise to see sail boats anchoring in the creek and more surprise to see dolphins this time a year also.  I had seen dolphins in the area during the summer, but it was first time so late in the fall season.

 

I had a busy morning.  I had my Monday cores, and I had the winter checkup on the heating unit, and I had dentist appointment.  I did not realize that they were going to do a root canal today (ouch!),  but I survived.  I know that it is a lot of driving, but tomorrow I need to stay home, so I went to the beach.  Atlantic Beach to be exact.  Sometime I wish we brought a place on the water and near a beach.  I love taking walks on the beach.  It is perfect way to end a perfect day.
