Last Saturday night we were treated to a total lunar eclipse. I was a little worried about viewing because there were some cirrus clouds at sunset. But I checked around 8 pm and the moon was nice bright looking only a little fuzzy through the clouds.

I made margaritas using fresh citrus growing in my terraza along with Cointreau and reposado tequila. Damn they were smooth, you couldn't tell how potent they really were.

Every half-hour or so we would check on the progression of the eclipse. Around 11:30 pm the moon was nearly directly overhead and somewhat hard to spot even though the clouds had left. The moon was a very dark coppery red color. But the margaritas had taken their toll and we were bit borracho so we called it a night.

Since I have been living here, there has been two solar eclipses and now this total lunar eclipse. This will be a poor position for the next lunar eclipse coming later this year.

That sounds so wonderful wish I could have been there for a margarita! Mine would never come out as good.

Margaritas

When you come to visit, I'll make sure to make some for you.
