Summer Solstice

Today marks the first "official" day of summer--The Summer Solstice. It's the longest day of the year so use it wisely...have some fun!

Hubby and I went out this morning to welcome in the day. After breakfast at a local cafe, we drove to the ocean. The fog was rolling in over the water and the fog horn from a nearby lighthouse was wailing a warning in the distance. The seagulls were swooping and soaring, riding the wind currents.

Just at the exact moment of the Solstice (7:28 EDT) the sun broke through the clouds and fog. It was simply breathtaking. We sat there for a while and watched the fog roll out and back in again, a dance of the elements. Mother Nature put on quite the show this morning. The perfect way to start the day. I just wish we'd remembered to bring the camera.

I hope you have a wonderful Summer Solstice and a fantastice summer!

I think I will walk to the local park and watch the sunset over the lake.
