The Supermoon came and went in New York but you’d never have noticed, because the city stayed resolutely under cover of dense fog all evening.
Oh well, there’s always next year. Did you manage to get a photo of the Supermoon?
Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall.
And I’m just getting started.
If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

Beautiful photo! I hear techno when I see this scene **rave dancing at desk**
Hilarious, made me laugh out loud. 🙂
Lovely photo, anyway!
We saw the pre-supermoon on Friday. Once it had risen high it looked just like any other nice, full moon… 🙂
But yesterday the post-supermoon did mess up the tidal currents, not necessarily for the better.
Did it really? In what way – and how did it affect your kayaking?
Well, you would expect the moon in perigee to make tidal currents stronger. We were paddling from Manhattan down to Sandy Hook and the ebb current, which is normally strong, was really sluggish. On the other hand, the flood current coming back, which is normally weaker than the ebb, was just roaring!—for which we were thankful 🙂
So the moon gave you a little helping hand on the way home, how perfect. 😉
Yes… I guess we should offer the appropriate sacrifice…
Well the fog is beautiful in its own way! I didn’t take any photos this year, but I did watch it on the beach in FL and it was gorgeous
I’d love to have seen it, even a teeny bit of it through the fog would have sufficed, but alas, it was not meant to be.
