A Picnic, A Puppy and A Supermoon

For nearly 2 years now I’ve wanted to watch the full moon rise over the beach but we always seem to forget or arrive too late but when I heard there was a Supermoon on Sunday I made sure we witnessed it.

So we packed up a little picnic and the pup and the 3 of us headed down the road to the beach to watch the Supermoon rise.

At first we kept having people come over to us wanting to see Stelly which I usually don’t mind but we were set up with a picnic and drinks having some quiet time and they didn’t really seem to get that … I guess she is irresistible though.

Eventually we were left in peace and the few other people that were there disappeared not long after the sun went down.

It was a beautiful clear afternoon and we were treated to a gorgeous sunset which was then overlapped by the spectacular rising moon.

It was breathtakingly beautiful watching the purple and orange stained sky with the moon emerging on the horizon across the ocean with the waves rolling the moons rays closer and closer to us.

It really made us appreciate just how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful part of the world and sharing it with out little puppy just topped it off.

I think the Supermoon got to Stelly a little, she’s usually quite calm but as you’ll see in the video she kept wanting to jump around near the cliff edge … by the time the sun had completely sunk behind the escarpment and the moon was in full bloom little Stelly was fast asleep to the sounds of the ocean.

Did you watch the Supermoon rise?

Share your stories and pics below! We’d love to see how people in other corners of the earth witness it.

I laid eyes on my first Boston Terrier whilst living in a rustic cabin in Canada and was immediately smitten. I created Boston Terriers Rock for people like myself who love the unique style and character of Boston Terriers so we can connect and share our knowledge, experience and fun of our quirky Bostons.

    Wow those pics are fantastic!!! Yes we watched the supermoon rising from South Africa. We were actually taking Mac for a walk around the golf course, and the sight was just breathtaking – wish i had had my camera or even phone with me. Unfortunately it clouded over later so we missed the full night time part of the show. Stelly looked so excited!

      Thanks Tanya – yes Stelly was very excited.

      What a shame you didn’t have your camera, I would’ve loved to see some pics. Good thing the clouds didn’t cover it for the whole night.

    Your photos are gorgeous! The video was very sweet! Stelly is so darn cute. I especially like the photo of her sleeping under the moon light. Priceless! Thank you so much for sharing! <3
