Full Harvest Moon - September

I love a warm September sail and this weekend I was blessed with two great days on the water.

Saturday was my first-ever race (loafing on Bob and Margaret's boat), and today it was a leisurely cruise from late afternoon into evening, watching the full moon rise like a Phoenix.  Moonlight dazzle on the water.

The official time for the full moon this month is 5:27 a.m. September 12.   The moon closest to the fall equinox is the  Full Harvest Moon which would give me an excuse to post the Neil Young standard, or the 1930's favourite, "Shine on Harvest Moon", both of which I absolutely love.

But what can I say, Italy is on my mind.  And the moon hit my eye, like a big pizza pie!
