Full Moon Beach Ride - Redux

Full Moon Beach Ride – Redux

The first version was a blast! So we will do it again. Saturday, December 10 · 4:00pm – 10:00pm December 10th is a pretty cool day for a repeat because the sun sets at 4:17PM while the moon rise begins just a few minutes later at 4:30PM. My guess this time of the year is that if there […]
