Summer Solstice 2010
Wish we were here...
But we weren't :)
We wanted to get up for sunrise and drive to a high view point, but with a home ed group at 10.30 a good drive away; a frequently nursing infant and a car sick girl, I was not taking the risk of a 02.00hrs start.
So we had a sunset party in our garden once babe was snuggled and asleep.
Toasting marshmallows with Daddy ("Pixie - they're not vegetarian you know?" "I know mummy, I'm only having a few though!") Pixie says she is now vegetarian, but she will eat only "good quality organic meat". Think I may have influenced her a little.
Rocket and leaves from the garden, home made Solstice pizza (what? it was full of sun-coloured veggies!) and a good dollop of ketchup :)
A lovely symbolic fire
Some cloud gazing as the sun went down
And a small lady getting tired at 23.00hrs, although not for giving in and sleeping - was well after midnight before she settles, and bizarrely, still daylight nearly.
