We played at a street festival in Jasper this evening. It's the first one of spring, and not many people turned out, but we had fun all the same. 
We got in a good practice, and the people who came seemed to enjoy it.
I'd worked up a sweat setting up the equipment, because the streets run east and west, and the evening sun was warm.
Once the sun dipped below the horizon, there was a chill in the air, and it felt like San Francisco in the spring.
We got to watch our friends, The Spookhouse Saints, perform which is always fun.
After our performance, we started to find an open restaurant downtown, but Jilda is still recovering from her treatment earlier in the week, so we headed home.
As we left the city lights behind, I heard her gasp. I first thought a deer was about to scamper in front of us, but just then I saw what she was looking at.
A full moon, the color of butterscotch came into view and it looked as big as a basketball. I tried to shoot a photo with my iPhone, but with no telescope, the moon looked unimpressive. I'm usually happy with my iPhoneography, but tonight I wished I'd had my big camera with me.
So I took a few snaps with my mental camera. I can't share the image with you, but in my mind, the picture is very good.
Y'all have a great Easter Eve, and a blessed Easter.

    Well it sounds beautiful and I have a pretty good imagination.

  2. I can just imagine the music and the moon.
    Must have been a long ride home and I hope Jilda is feeling better.
    Happy Easter and blessings to you as well :)

  3. I saw the same orange moon whilst coming home from Good Friday service...I hurried to set up my camera but, alas, I was too late...the moon had lost its sunset-y colour and looked stark and small amidst the palm tree branches. :( Maybe near sunrise this morning, I can catch it falling into the sea.

  4. I do wish I'd seen it.
