In case you weren’t paying attention, last night we had a “Supermoon” which some people called a “Cool Moon”. It was a the only full supermoon of 2017. The moon appeared 7 percent larger and 16 percent brighter than usual since it was at perigee.
All I really know is that it was beautiful and bright. Here it is as I left the house for my walk.
A little closer to the Coupeville Wharf I captured this stunning photo of the Supermoon over the wharf and reflecting on Penn Cove.
As I was walking along I spotted a guy doing something in a garage. I just had to stop and talk to him because the garage was just recently restored with the help of Ebey Forever Fund. They help preserve old buildings in Coupeville and the Ebey Reserve.
He was the owner and told me that the garage was built early in Coupeville’s development which means sometime between 1853 and 1865. The wood used to repair the structure was all from the same era. He pointed out a cedar corner board that had some material in the nail holes. The wood came from an old farmhouse from that same era and the material was wallpaper. It’s now good for another 150 years or more.
Thanks for walking with me and I think we’ll do it again real soon. It’s supposed to be nice for most of the week ahead.
