I’ve talked about how DirtMan and I enjoy stargazing. We arrived at Bodie Island Lighthouse right at dusk. We took several photos and headed to the sound for photos of the sunset.
We came back late so DirtMan could get some Milky Way shots over the lighthouse. We had the place to ourselves. We took our lawn chairs and stretched out beneath the stars. It was just the two of us beneath this amazing twinkling canopy of sky. After our eyes adjusted we didn’t need lights…the stars lit our path through the darkness. In the woods beyond us we could hear whippoorwills calling, red fox yipping, bull frogs bellowing, and katydids singing…entertained by nature’s orchestra and heaven’s light show.
