Super Moon

No, I didn’t take this photo, I stole it from NASA.
Last night I went to see the Super Moon, the brightest and closest moon of 2012. I packed up my camera, and with great foresight even packed the longer lens to get a good shot of the moon. Down to East Beach in White Rock where there’s a little less light pollution and I found the perfect shot.
Looking out over the ocean, the moon just above the lights of the border, a long glowing path on the bay up to the few lights in the trees along the beach. Perfect.
Took out the camera, lined it all up, perfect zoom.
Battery dead.
Completely dead.
OK, well I have my phone as a backup.
Nope, the camera application from the latest ROM I’d downloaded crashed.
So here’s a photo from NASA for you to enjoy.

Happy birthday to me.

Birthday haul

Loot, loot, loot

Today I hit 35 and in celebration my familysent lots of loot from Ireland. Oh Tayto cheese and onion, how I’ve missed you. And a ziplock of Lyon’s tea bags. I think I’m going to settle in for an afternoon of cups of tea and chocolate biscuits.
