A full moon and low tide creates magical effects

With the moon closer to earth than its been for a very long time (in combination with a full moon), the moon looks larger than normal -- and majestic as it 'sails' across the night sky.

For me, it's magical sight to watch thousands of mutton birds flapping and gliding across the pathway of silvery moonlight that shimmers across the bay.

By day, the full moon means exceptionally low tides, with sections of the rocky reef exposed that normally lie beneath the water. What a wonderland to explore!
