Tonight I saw something I'd never seen before: the moon rising up out of the ocean. It's weird being on the east coast where the sun rises out of the ocean and sets behind the buildings facing the beach, when you're used to seeing it the opposite way, with the sun setting in the ocean. Seeing the moon rising up out of the ocean, glowing an eerie shade of orange, for the first time, is one of those things you know you're going to remember. The mood was also helped by a thunderstorm to the right with frequent lightning jumping from cloud to cloud and occasionally striking down to the ocean, and by the fact that I was sitting there with Mirella, enjoying a nice romantic moment on a practically deserted beach.
The $30 parking ticket when we got back to the truck kind of brought things back to reality though ;)
