Summer Solstice Sunset Picnic.

Today was a beautiful long day, literally, because today was the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year and I love it!  Here in the Pacific Northwest we were blessed with 16+ hours of glorious daylight.   So tonight, after a long day at work, we ordered Thai food and had an impromptu picnic at the beach.

It was a beautiful evening and all along Sunset Avenue cars were lined up to gaze at the colorful show about to unfold.

The ferry had just loaded and was about to begin it's journey across the Sound.

And we sat with our picnic basket and Thai food at the water's edge.

It was lovely, ferry on the water, train's whistling by in either direction, birds soaring above and the sun dipping behind the Olympic Mountains.

And after the third train passed by and the sun had finally set, we packed up our little picnic and headed home.

I hope you all made the most of this magical day.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

I am looking forward to the Supermoon.
