I didn't think that I would have time to catch the full moon last night. Since I usually get out of work around 8, I was at peace with the idea of not catching this one, and already looking forward to my next opportunity. But wouldn't you know, a slow night allowed me to leave at 7, giving me seconds to spare in arriving at this destination by moonrise at 7:30. I wasn't totally sure that I would see the moon through the bridge, I thought the angle might be too extreme and shut off the small 'window' from the perspective needed to line up with the moon. I also wasn't sure exactly where I needed to stand to catch it coming up like this, dead center underneath the bridge. You should have seen me, I was pacing back and forth across the stony beach behind Cook's back and forth, watching the horizon for the first sign of the moon. Oh, when I saw it... I was so excited! Yes! It was an amazing sight to behold. The Cribstone Bridge spans the divide between Orr's and Bailey Islands known as Will's Gut. It is a National Historic Landmark and a Civil Engineering Landmark. It is the only bridge of its kind in the world.
