On the Summer Solstice

To celebrate the changing of the seasons, the shortest night of the year, the summer solstice we made the most of the day.

: : excitedly donned short sleeves and sun hats
: : walked barefoot in the sand
: : splashed in the lake (it was actually warm and I was not prepared for our impromptu dip)
: : picked up some local strawberries, the first of the season, for jam
: : dried clothes on the line (lately it has been so windy it has been ripping the clothes from my line)
: : picked herbs and greens from my garden for dinner
: : turned on the barbeque and welcomed family for a solstice dinner 
: : had fiddleheads for the first time in years and ate strawberries straight from the flat
: : quietly watered the garden as the sun set

So thankful for a warm, peaceful and happy day to welcome summer with.
