I knew it was a full moon week because people were driving dangerously, check out lines were slower, and, I was clumsier and more forgetful than normal. Plus, your Friday Art Cat wanted to go outside to sneak off into the bushes, and kept pawing at the door in an annoyingly persistent manner.
Feeling antsy myself, my husband and I found a nearby trail at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore to watch the sunset while the Full Buck Moon (one of its many nicknames) simultaneously appeared behind us, climbing over the dune.
The optical effect of the moon in person is so different when captured by a camera, but it effectively lit our way back along the woodsy trail. It was almost as magical as cats sitting on a branch.
