Last night was a full moon again. It was lovely and as it rose over my house, it seemed bigger than ever.

I have had the opportunity to be outside in the moonlight a fair few times in the last couple of weeks, and I have to say that I find it very agreeable. There is something about moonlight that makes one feel calm and at one with the universe. Maybe it is the fact that the moon, although a long way away, is actually attainable, people have actually been there.

I do wish, however, that I had a) the camera and b) the skill to take photos of the moon. While we were out with the Ashburton Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team on Wednesday night, the moon was perfect, it shone directly through the branches of a tree onto us. It was like sitting in a pool of silver but my photos were like mushy blurs of light.

I have decided that a bivvy bag might be a good way to look at the Dartmoor moon (although clear nights on the moors can be evasive). Mr B2 does a fair amount of bivying but I haven’t tried it yet.
I guess some girls want moonstones and diamonds for Christmas, I would like a bivvy bag so that I can lie out on Dartmoor and have the moon and stars instead.
