Blue Moon over Mount Baker ~ July 31st

Another hot day around Vancouver and by the time we arrived at Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen the air temperature was 28 degrees. The water was exceptionally warm too, cooling as the tide came in. As the sun set the sky became a paler shade of pink.

A blue moon happens about every 30 months and occurs whenever there are two full moons in a single month.

From our vantage point this full moon rose behind Mount Baker. It was never blue, nor is it hardly ever blue, making one wonder why it's called a blue moon. The song perhaps?
