Happy September!

Welcome to one of my favorite months on the Island-- the tourist crowds are thinning, the water's still warm, the light is beautiful (even as the days get  shorter) and it's typically great weather for sailing, biking and running...

Stop Sook Wave Newport Waves recently initiated their Stop. Look. Wave. campaign to improve awareness and safety for pedestrians, runners and bikers vs. cars. I think it's a great idea-- let's take it one step further and add a smile. I'll wave and smile if I see you, hope you will wave back! 

 and if you please...

Blood Moon
On 9/28, the "Super Moon" will look larger and brighter than usual due to its close approach to Earth. This Harvest Super Moon coincides with a total lunar eclipse as it passes completely through the Earth's dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and take on a rusty or blood red color, also known as the Super Blood Moon.
