Full Beaver Moon

Hmm, seems I forgot to post about the October “Hunters” Full Moon while in England. It rained most of the time and I didn’t even notice the moon. Tonight is quite different. I am sitting this full moon out in the Airstream parking lot in Lexington, SC. This is my 3rd attempt at getting my little refrigerator fixed so it can work on electricity. The parking lot is very well lit, and the moon is just as bright.

November’s full Moon is called the Beaver Moon. This is the time of year when beavers begin to take shelter in their lodges, having laid up sufficient stores of food for the long winter ahead. During the time of the fur trade, it was also the season to trap beavers for their thick, winter-ready pelts.  The November full Moon is also called the Full Frost Moon. Judging by the often chilly weather that becomes more and more common at this time of year, it’s not hard to understand how this name came about!

Join me in my monthly ritual and fill your favorite drinking glass with a beverage of your choice and toast to living the dream, or dreaming the dream.  Toast to family, friends, health, and wellness. I am also wishing that the refrigerator part arrives promptly tomorrow morning, the installation goes quickly, and I can be on my way to Savanna Georgia.
