Happy Summer!

Feasting is necessary during solstice.

Feasting is necessary during solstice.

Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, happened June 21st, this past Saturday. This year it rained all day. That didn't stop Knudson Cove Marina from having their annual party, even the band played! Lots of people showed up, bringing food and merriment. The kids broke a piñata and colored pictures to win prizes. A little rain never stops a good party in southeast Alaska.

The mayhem after the piñata broke.

The longest day of the year has come and gone. Summer is in full swing. The next two months will be filled with fishing, camping, grilling, and lots of other fun things. A little sunshine here and there will be welcome. Tourist season is in full swing. Summer is a time for work but also a time to relax and enjoy. Remember to take time to smell whatever flowers cross your path. Summer doesn't last forever and is meant to be appreciated among the hustle and bustle.

The band kept dry from the rain.

I heard a recent comment that solstice is being celebrated like never before. How did you celebrate solstice this year?
