The moon over the ocean. Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. May 8, 2009.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  Last week over 300 people shared their view of the sky.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

There were so many nice things about our vacation at the beach that it’s hard to pick the one thing that stands out.  I’ve already mentioned the beach and the seafood and Betsy talked about some of the waterfalls we saw to and from the beach.

But one very special thing was the show Mother Nature put on for us the last two nights we were at the beach.  We had a beautiful moonrise right opposite the balcony of our room.  The moon and the reflection on the ocean were absolutely gorgeous.

Of course I didn’t have a tripod with me, so the picture above is not as good as it could be.  Still, it’s a nice reminder of a couple of special evenings.

I’ve posted another picture of the moon over the ocean on my photo blog, Photos by Senior Hiker.  You can see it by clicking HERE.

    This is pretty. I painted a picture kind of like this photo. I love the moon and the ocean.

    Moon lit walks on the beach are in a class of their own!
    Glad it showed up for you two.

    I can ‘smell’ the ocean and hear the sounds. Good photo.

    I bet the water was lovely with the moon. Sounds like a glorious trip. Speaking of tripods, while you were away I found a hiking/walking stick that is a monopod – it’s my post entitled walking stick if you want to take a look. Might be great for you two to hike to waterfalls with!

    Looks like one of those vintage photos from the 1950’s. Stop by our skywatch and see what you would have passed by en route home in our neck of North Carolina.

    Thank you for sharing!!!
