Full Beaver Moon
Nights of Lights
Join us for a quiet and relaxing paddle along downtown St Augustine's waterfront at sunset for the elegant simplicity of the magnificent ambiance from transition of dusk, to nights of lights to Full Beaver Moon.
Experience a beautiful sunset, the dazzling, sensational sensation of the nights of lights, an extraordinarily exciting full moon and the true simple invigorating treasure, of the view of downtown St Augustine from the water.
November's full Moon was called the Beaver Moon because it was the time to set traps, before the waters froze over. This Moon was also called the Full Frost Moon.
We will launch at the Vilano boat ramp and make our way towards the mission cross of Nombre de Dios, make a brief stop at Bird Island and take in the refreshing optimism of living in the moment and the fabulous full moon. Then continue to the bay front to watch the illumination of the nights of lights then return.
Duration for this paddle will be about 3 hours
Distance - about 3 miles round trip.
