The actual moon:
The moon pie:
They’re both round. Only one is edible.
Moon pies are a big deal in Bell Buckle, Tennessee — home of the yearly RC Cola & Moon Pie Festival.
This very, very, very small town is also home to the Bell Buckle Cafe:
Bell Buckle Cafe has an eclectic menu, which features some moon pie-infused specialties. The place is a lunar legend.
Rock on, moon gazers and moon pie lovers.

I shared a few photos from our hike through Cinque Terre, Italy here. The seaside, the views – it’s lovely. : )
We started out early in the day by grabbing some fruit at one of the small streetside markets….
Our hike wound along the coast of the Mediterranean through 5 towns, some vineyards, and natural cliffs. In the middle of one orchard, we came across an Italian man selling fresh lemonade to hikers….
For lunch, we stopped in the harbor of one of the towns with some grab-and-go pizza….
Throughout the hike, we overheard people talking in all different languages – Italian, English, German, French, and more. It was an interesting mélange of people from all different places – all come to enjoy the Italian coast….
Everyone we passed would say “excuse me” in a different language. Scusi, permesso, entschuldigung, pardon…
Cinque Terre is famous for its beautiful scenery and seaside hikes, but its mixture of different visitors makes for a really unique atmosphere, too. : )
