Total Eclipse Day—Yes, please!

total eclipse day 2017

 

We loved every minute of the total eclipse day here in Cashiers. We arrived early for the party and enjoyed breakfast and golf cart tours and a little sight seeing—mainly to avoid the incredible traffic.

The viewing party chairs were lined up like soldiers on the lawn, eclipse glasses were passed out and the instruction signs were all in place. Everyone was thrilled to be there … especially on a Monday!

The bar was ready with specialty light, medium and dark drinks along with a fun playlist of sun, moon and eclipse songs. The day was a little cloudy, but we did see the eclipse and experienced the total dark and eerie quiet for two minutes.

When the moon started moving away from the sun the wind gust took everyone by surprise. We did miss seeing the shadow of the moon chase across the grass—it was way too cloudy. Most of all it was an enjoyable day packed full of friends, food and fun.
