At the end of each full and busy day, watching the sun set over Lake Almanor was the time to wind down and relax. As the moon became fuller each evening, we'd settle around the fire pit after dinner with coffee, children making S'mores, watching the last boats make for safe harbor, and late paddle boarders head for home past the deck.
One special evening the moon appeared suddenly and silently between the hills, peering at us from what seemed like a secret hiding place, surprising us as it seemed to roll along the ridge line, floating higher by the moment - I ran for my camera to capture the beauty...........
................and, as the darkness set in turning the hills to shadows, the moon's amazing light and brightness exploded on the water in a silver pathway to our door.
I'm home again, missing beautiful northern California, its scenery, and its perfect summer weather. Another fabulous stay on the lake .......................more pictures coming when the laundry's done, the garden trimmed and weeded, and life returns to ordinary! I hope to catch up with everyone soon.
