I’ve jabbered on a bit about the nights drawing in and getting darker. The plus side is that you can see the stars earlier and there is more time to be moonstruck. There have been some awesome sunsets recently and full moons to keep us entertained. Here’s one we captured on camera from our cottage at Cape South, Hawkes Bay.
Being away from the urban areas is something I’ve come to really love – no light polution to spoil the view. The downside of course is that there are plenty of dark spots for boogey men to hide in as I found out to my peril when walking the dogs the other day in the dark.
You’d think that with two strapping dogs I’d be well protected. You need to see Fortnum and Mason in action to realise that they are not guard dogs and Mason does a wonderful four legged bounce backwards at anything he doesn’t like. Including bushes that sway in the wind after dark!
Thank goodness for daylight saving. If they hadn’t changed the rules we’d have been in early darkness by now.
