Strawberry Moon over St. Augustine

Glimmering blush in the sky just above the blue waters on a warm night in June

Beauty and wonder lighting the night, its the Strawberry moon

On June 28, 2018 I witnessed the Strawberry moon from a beach in St. Augustine. What a spectacular sight! The full moon, named the Strawberry moon, perhaps derived the name from the Native Americans because it occurred in June, which is peak strawberry month. However, it also appears to have a reddish tint when close to the horizon.  In Europe, it is also called the Rose moon.  Hope you enjoy the photos taken from Surfside Park, Vilano Beach in St. Augustine, Florida.
