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.

Dog Boarding – Dexter’s Amazing Skateboard Tricks

Browsing through Vimeo I stumbled on this clever little clip featuring a cool Boston Terrier and naturally, just had to share it.

This video was made by Alien Art Agency who are based near the beach in the south of France, must be a tough life living there I’m sure!

The clip features “Alien’s” Boston Terrier, Dexter busting some seriously pro skateboarding tricks in the sun with Alien claiming him to be the first pro Dog Boarder. And hey, why not.

Created with a Canon 7D a green screen, After Effects and a large dose of fun and creativity. This is sure to make you laugh while Dexter busts a move with some pretty cool tunes behind him.
