Stargazing in Glenelg

I could say "Stargazing Live in Glenelg" but as most of it (in our case) is done on the way back from the Glenelg Inn it's more a case of "Stargazing, barely standing upright, in Glenelg"!!
Anyway, after a fairly wet and windy first week of the year, last week gave us a few of those brilliant Glenelg days when everyone and their dogs were out and about, walking on the beach and enjoying the blue skies and sunshine. The other thing noticeable was the stunning night sky. The “dark skies” around Glenelg give a great opportunity to stargaze and, just coming up to a year since we moved here, we are still gobsmacked every time we walk home on a clear night. I think the added attraction of silence on a calm, clear night on the West Coast just add to the “WOW” experience and it’s one of the reasons winter visitors come to Glenelg. I must get out the camera instructions and check how I take a photo of the stars. Meantime this is one I took earlier of the Moon. From outside the Lodge with a handheld camera!

ps: Happy New year!!
