Star Gazers

From The Other Half,
This is a date my other half planned for us one summer evening. We both really enjoyed it and use it as the example our other dates should look up to. I didn’t know what we were doing that night so everything was a surprise. Here it goes.

I started the date by finding stars taped to the ceiling of our car (my other half likes to tape things to car ceilings, living room ceilings, kitchen ceilings, etc. etc. etc….). Then we headed up a nearby canyon. On the way up the canyon we were keeping an eye out for a great place to stop and have a bite to eat. We stopped by a little stream and my other half pulled out balsamic tomato sandwiches, star fruit, star shaped fruit pizzas, and my favorite Henry Weinhard's root beer! After the meal we finished our journey to the top of the canyon and my other half revealed several astronomy books, some about constellations, others about stellar happenings, and yet others with plenty of space facts (all checked out from the library). It was blast learning about and searching the heavens with my other (better) half! Oh, and bring some binoculars if you don’t have a telescope.
