Happy Summer!

The Summer Solstice has arrived!  We are spending it making sun tea, which will soon be poured over ice, and heading to a leafy, shaded park later today.

This weekend we went to two beaches: South Carlsbad State Beach, seen here:…and after that, we headed to Fletcher Cove  in Solana Beach, seen here: Note there is also a snowy egret rookery just across the road!

The egrets have built several nests in this tree, and they make the funniest sounds, “Lobble-lobble!” and growls and bays.  

Now we are ready to glide through the sultry summer days, with picnics and road trips and potlucks in the works.  

For now, I’m waiting for that tall glass of sun tea to cheer the longest day of the year.
