Happy Solstice!

For anyone wondering about our famous midnight sun

This was indeed taken at midnight (2 minutes ago). It’s pretty bright out! And now we start losing daylight again. But we will still have pretty long days for the next couple months, at least.

Also, belated Happy Juneteenth, and Happy Father’s Day!

  1. We are just a bit north of Sitka’s latitude line where I live. So when I went to bed at 11.30pm it was light enough to have read a book outside…or pick snails off my lupins which is the more normal routine at night.

    1. You should! It is beautiful in the summer πŸ™‚ In normal years there is a huge party/festival downtown for solstice, and it does go through the night. We did it one year, but it’s more for harder partiers than we are πŸ™‚
