Watching the full moon rise over Monona Terrace
We went to Monona Terrace last night to watch the full moon rising over Lake Monona.
Twilight was settling in when we arrived. This is the rooftop cafe. I love the poignance of an outdoor cafe at dusk when the umbrellas have been folded up and have gone to sleep. Lonely and cozy at the same time.
There were many moons on the roof of Monona Terrace -- the signature Monona Terrace beehive hemispheres glowing warmly in the dying light. It made the real moon almost seem to be another satellite of these artificial moons. Should be even more beautiful tonight, when Monona's Fourth of July fireworks display takes place across th elake beneath the full moon.
