Happy Summer Solstice

Today was the longest day of the 2011 calendar year.  That's because it was the beginning of Summer or the Summer Solstice.  In the Northern Hemisphere this means daylight will be longest.  In the Arctic Circle, the Summer Solstice lasts 24 hours.  Isn't that fascinating?  And speaking of the Arctic Circle, I highly recommend a poignant love story in a film called Lovers of the Arctic Circle by Julio Medem.

What did Emilu and I do today?  Well, nothing that exhuberant for sure.  We spent the day taking naps and doing a few things around the house.  Then we ventured out when my husband returned from work.  This picture was taken at 8:30 p.m. in our neighborhood, see how bright it still was outside?

I hope you had a great Summer Solstice.  To see pictures around the world click here.
