Announcing a new Meetup for Paris Full Moon Picnic Group!

What: Full Moon Picnic, Wed Aug 25, Pont des Arts

When: Wednesday, August 25,[masked]:00 PM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Hi Everybody,

Captain Bob still being away next week I'll be hostessing again, and this time our picnic on the Pont des Arts will even (almost) be on the Full Moon! Here's what Bob has to say about our date: the moon on Aug 25 will look just as full and is always more beautiful the day after because the sky is darker by the time the moon rises.

He also sent a short tidbit from Indian lore:
This full moon was known to American Indians as the Full Sturgeon Moon (big fish in the Great Lakes) or Full Red Moon or the Green Corn Moon.

Full moon is on Aug 24, rising around 8:40.
On Aug 25, full moon will rise about 9 pm. (Sunset around 8:30 pm)

WHAT: Everyone brings food and drinks to share.

WHERE: Pont des Arts. We'll gather around a bench near the middle of the bridge. Nearest metros: Pont Neuf and Louvre-Rivoli.

WHEN: Wednesday August 25 from 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

WHY: Share one of the most memorable sights in Paris with some of the nicest people around.

WHO: You and your friends.

HOW to find us: Don't look for the usual small white telescope because it won't be there (think to bring binoculars if you have any). Just look for a bunch of nice people probably speaking English, drinking and munching around a bench, probably near the middle of the bridge.

NOTE: Some people forgot their knives, cloths etc. I'd like to give them back.

QUESTION from Captain Bob:
Anybody have, or know of, a car for sale in Paris? I'll have no wheels when I return and am looking for an old utility van, "utilitaire" like a Kangoo.

Ciao for niao, as the man says
