Summernights


The girls came in around 4:30 am....they were sound asleep when I went to wake them for school. The 10yearold complained about her 12yearold sister not allowing her to sleep outside alone...


It is 0:30 am, and still daylight- almost. I need some light indoors, but it is just lovely on the outside. The picture is taken without flash, from our porch, towards the monastery island Selja, there is a pale slice of the moon hanging over the island. In just a couple of days the sun will turn, and the days are getting shorter again. MidsummernightsEve on Saturday. Usually a night for bonfires and barbeques, midnight swims in the ocean, gathering with good friends.
I've been knitting- a little bit- and I finished a book by James Rollins, called "Dragehoffet" in Norwegian (Map of bones). Then I opened his second book"Black order". Hmmm. There might not be much knitting done the next couple of days...
Have a relaxing day!

I Just love that northern summer light...long evenings...it is one of the things I miss most about not living in Scotland.
Have a wonderful Midsummer's gathering!

Oh, what a splendid view! Here in southern Norway we have a similar site at around about the same time. We are really enjoying the long, light-filled evenings. Happy Days! :o)

I am still having problems contemplating that much sun. But when I was in Bodo (sorry, I can't remember the ASCII right now for the o/slash) one March, it was already 12 hours of light.
Needed I suppose to make up for the winters.
Never been farther north than Oslo in the winter, and the three hours of daylight seemed awfully short.
Soak up the light, especially this weekend
