On behalf of the Community Association of Oak Bay, Ron Carter, Embrace the Night Coordinator says:
By definition, a “Super Moon is when the full moon coincides with having it’s closest orbit to earth and creating the illusion of being up to 14% larger than other full moons. During our walk we hope to catch the moon as it rises over the ocean from the horizon. Just a sideshow of course from our real purpose of a 1 hour stroll throughout beautiful Oak Bay minus the need of our “devices”. We also enjoy mingling and meeting new people while we walk far away from our evening chores, domestic ties and sedentary habits.
Starting Location: The Oak Bay Kiwanis Tea Room at the foot of Dalhousie Street in Willows Beach Park.
The Route (approximate): Beginning and ending at the Tea Room, we will walk along the eastern waterfront to catch the moonrise and perhaps a few new pieces of the summer art now in place.
Finishing Location: Cattle Point Star Park back to the Willows Beach Park Tea Room for refreshments and treats by donations to Kiwanis.
Note: If you like, bring binoculars to enhance the experience to see the full moon up really close or catch some of the interesting feathered fauna along the shoreline.
