Embrace the Night with Friday’s near full moon in Oak Bay

Make the most of the nearly blue moon Friday with the first spring Embrace the Night walk.

It’s now officially time to put some spring in your step, according to Ron Carter, one of the organizers of the Embrace the Night walks.

“This month’s walk starts and finish at our favourite starting (and finishing) location next to Chris Paul’s Salish Sea sculpture on the south side of the Oak Bay Marina/Turkey Head parking lot,” Carter says. “Wind, rain sleet or pink snow (cherry petals) shall prevent this from happening so be prepared if you decide to join us; and we truly hope you can.”

The full moon is March 31 but rises too late, so the first one-hour Embrace the Night walk is Friday, March 30, 7 p.m. and clear night willing, walkers will see the near full moon around 7 p.m.
