Then followed that beautiful season…Summer…
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Summer begins today at 1:16 PM EDT. The Pacific Northwest has had a cold, wet spring and I think it’s safe to say that everyone in Seattle is looking forward to a stretch of warm, sunny days. One of the great things about being in this neck of the woods in the summer months are the long days. The sun rose at 5:11 this morning and will set at 9:11 this evening. Light is streaming in through the window as I write this and it sure feels good! I have the door to the deck open and the air is fresh and warm. Let’s hope this is a good omen for lots of sun and warmth this summer. Mother Nature graced us with a beautiful day yesterday to say goodbye to spring. It wasn’t bright and sunny, but there was enough blue sky and light to put smiles on our faces and a spring in our step. I was able to wear capris and didn’t need my down vest – a good thing! The girls and I said goodbye to spring with a walk along the seawall in Lincoln Park.
We enjoyed our evening walk along Sunset Drive.
This was the view we saw before we shut our eyes last night. It’s always hard for me to close the blinds.
The following photos are of last week’s full moon.
Wishing you a summer filled with love and laughter.
