Moonlight Stroll in Nova Scotia

Hi Everyone,

Well, I just returned from a moonlight stroll.
It's a beautiful night here on the south shore
of Nova Scotia. Rather cool, though, with the
temperature hovering around 10 Celsuis.

I love the harvest moon of October. It stays
fairly high in the sky, all evening, and into
the late night hours.

As I walked along the old dirt road, a
porcupine moved out from the bushes, sudden
like, at about twenty feet in front of me. It
didn't seem the least bit disturbed by my
approaching figure or the sound of my
footsteps, but simply moved over the road and
off into the bushes.

I figure Porky was on his way to an apple
tree in the nearby field.

So, now, I'm back home, and sipping a cup of
tea as I write this note. I'll post it in a
minute or so, then finish my tea, and head
off to bed.

All the best to everyone,

p.s. I'm on Twitter. Follow me and I'll follow
you! :)

This was one of my favourite things to do when I lived in Halifax. Especially during the cold winter months - there was something serene and peaceful about it.

Hi Rex,

Thanks for the note.

Yes, I agree, moonlight walking is indeed peaceful and serene. And, in winter, the moon is even brighter, as its light reflects from off the snow.

Best regards,
