I've been kayaking under a full moon before, but never a super moon! Apparently, last night, Earth was as close to the moon (or the moon was as close to the Earth) as it would be for the next 19 years. That fun fact, combined with clear skies, no wind, and mild Seattle temperatures made for a beautiful paddle in Lake Washington.
Taking pictures in the dark is always tricky - but here they are!
Also, I must admit being completely freaked out when I finally decided to come back in. I guess I was landing right next to a beaver condo development. Beavers everywhere - making huge splashes with their tails probably trying to keep me away. I thought I was being attacked by high schoolers with rocks...beavers: 1, ETC: 0.

Here's 9 seconds of moonlight kayaking...the whole experience is hard to capture (as it should be)!
