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.
