A rising harvest moon from the beach.
In our small community surrounding East Matunuck Beach, there is a little village called Jerasaluem. It is a quaint New England community of fisherman and beach lovers and some year round local folk. We are one of them, and live 5 minutes away in Snug Harbor. We often come down at sunset to walk the beach, especially after the tourist season is over. I was so surprised to see the moon rising over the seaside village. I wasn't prepared, so I did the best I could to steady my hand. It was glowing in the sky as it was rising. It was beautiful!!!
