Not so supermoon
There was widespread excitement and anticipation about the much-heralded Supermoon this weekend; it would be the biggest and brightest moon for 20 years, an unmissable spectacle etc etc. Well oh dear what a damp squib, with the the clouds not quite literally raining on the moon's parade...but blotting it out and blurring it. We went up onto Dartmoor; there was moonlight but it was very obscure. We swam in our illicit place; but in the end our little moon worshipping ritual turned into a plain old swim in the dark.
