Sometimes we have adventures, like finding good places to see the supermoon awhile back. First, we went to the coast to see the sunset, and then we found a place with gaps in the mountains to see the moon when it rose. We went way up the coast, through Marin County (which was gorgeous) about an hour and a half, where there would be less light pollution. (Jon's idea.)
It was cold. but gorgeous. And we read some of "The Hobbit." It was like camping. (p.s. I love my car.) We might go back sometime when the moon itself isn't causing the light pollution, so we can see the stars.
