PROVINCETOWN – Watching the first of two August full moons – the sturgeon supermoon – rise on a warm evening on Race Point Beach was a treat.
Even after sunset, the beach was a lively place. It was a perfect summer evening. There were a few fires burning with folks gathered around them. A family roasted marshmallows, while soft conversation and laughter drifted into the air.
A fishing boat went slowly by and a calm, temperate utopian sense of postcard-perfect wonder rolled in off the repetitive soft sounds of the small ocean waves.
I found the moon, first from the parking lot and then I strategically placed myself on the beach to get the moon’s rise behind the Old Life Saving Station. It was something like perfect.
