We went in search of the sun today. It is after all the Summer Solstice – the day with the most hours of sunshine. But we didn’t see a lot of it.
The sun decided to play hide-n-seek!!!
But we did go to the park to meet Marley – and together we went in search for it.Marley had a good idea – she thought maybe the sun will be amongst the tall grass.But definitely not under the trees, guys!And definitely not in the Ladies toilet in the park!Oh look! Georgie and Marley – you’re in the shade. If you look behind you – there’s some sun! Mummy did wake up at sunrise and as sunlight came through our window, she said – “Hello, sun!” and then fell asleep again. She had told us that she had ideas on what to do on this longest day of the year – to make the full use of it. We knew it would never happen.
May’s comment: Learnt that Summer Solstice comes from the Latin solstitium meaning ‘sun stands still’ – because the sun heading north, stops at the Tropic of Cancer before returning southwards.
This also mean that from today- the nights will start to get longer and the days will become shorter. Sigh! Seasons come and go so fast.
But till then, enjoy the elusive British Summer! It’s coming!
