This morning we had a heavy coat of frost on deck, and on the docks. Usch. I've seen ice on deck before on other sailboats up on Champlain, but this is the first time for Tarwathie. The picture shows the docks, two hours later after the sun had risen a bit. Look closely and you can see bare wood in all the sunny spots and white in all the shaded spots.
In return for the cold morning, we had a spectacularly clear night last night. Before going to bed we were treated to the sight of a brilliant full moon right beside a brilliant full Jupiter. Coincidence? Not at all. Whenever the moon is full, it is in opposition to the sun. Ditto for Jupiter, and all other planets except Venus and Mercury. Therefore, they should be expected to be in the same part of the sky when in opposition. Anyhow, we were grateful for the beautiful sight.
