This week Ailsa’s theme is “ripples.” Here one of Kongo’s pet koi makes a few ripples while waiting to be fed. See more ripples at Where’s My Backpack. Advertisements
Well, this evening’s Super Moon in San Diego is still super but you have to admit, it’s pretty much as super as the one last night. In fact, Kongo couldn’t discern a difference at all. Still pretty cool. Related articles Waiting For Supermoon! (travel-monkey.me)
Kongo visited the La Jolla Festival of the Arts today for the second year in a row. The little monkey is really getting quite cultured. The festival is held on the campus of the University of California at San Diego and attracts artists in many forms from all over Southern California and the Southwest. Admission is $14. There is also food, drink, and live entertainment. Go grab a glass of wine and get some culture. Get more details here.
Kongo took this picture of the moon last night while getting all lathered up for the SUPER moon this evening. Tonight the biggest, fullest, and brightest moon of the year will occur. Well, the moon doesn’t actually get any bigger, it’s the same size it always is, but it will look a bit bigger because it’s at the closest point of approach to earth this year. A perigee moon. So if you have a clear sky tonight, go out and have a moon party! If you’re taking pictures, be sure to have your tripod handy. Travel safe. Have fun. Related…
This week’s photo challenge is The World Through Your Eyes. A flamingo at the San Diego Zoo eyes the world through shades of pink and orange.
So, Kongo is presently at 35,000 feet on DL 513 from MSP to San Diego as he heads home from a week of working in New Jersey and just scored an additional 15,000 miles for being a nice little monkey and not barking back at the woman of a certain age when she started behaving like a baboon.
