Things to Do - Get Away Adventures

Your Hosts Diana and Victor

Star Gazing

           

Imagine peering into a star filled sky without urban light pollution.

Because Island View is away from the main traffic arteries and located in the rural countryside the sky is basically free from light pollution. On a moonless silent winter's night when the heat does not disturb the air, the stairs are brilliant. If you wait just a few minutes for your eyes to get adjusted, you might be lucky enough to see a meteor pass quickly and silently overhead.  In the summer, on a clear cloudless  night the stars, planets and moon are visible as you walk along the county road listening to the cicadas sing their songs of the warm summer days and the fireflies flashing in the darkness of the night. It is magic for people used to living in large urban areas.

In the early morning or evening, if you are really quiet, it is not unusual to see a mother doe with her herd or a flock of wild turkeys ahead or beside you on the road.
