One Magical Evening

It was supposed to be the best view we could have of the midsummer night's moon as it rose, closest to the earth than any other day this year.
 
It was a pleasant day, and we packed a picnic dinner, and off we went to Magnuson Park to catch the moon.
 
There were too many clouds, however, and we missed the moon, but in the west was a glorious kaleidoscope of shifting clouds, catching the brilliant hues of the evening sun at nine o'clock.

All set to dine....


Where we should have seen the moon.......


This and the following pictures were just a few of the sights that evening









On our way back, we caught this view of the moon, over the cottage.

Raji, We are missing your poetic words. Can we some regular postings. Not many could write the routine and mundane stuff as beautifully as you do. When do you plan to come back to India?
