In the UK it's called the harvest moon, from when farmers gathered their crops by moonlight.

Here it's rather quiet, the last few nights a heavy dew has descended in the evening. An autumnal nip in the air. One that has seen the cardigans being worn by locals, and tourists alike.

The last few crazy days of summer, and probably about to get a little more crazy ...
