Happy Summer Solstice!
The longest day of the year is here! Yahoo! And here in the Pacific Northwest it is finally feeling like summer-kind of! It has been a cold wet spring. Just got back from eastern Canada where summer is indeed in swing and boy was I happy to enjoy that. Tonight I go for an evening kayak to welcome the solstice. Here's to a great summer 2008 despite the fact that I can barely afford to fuel my truck to get anywhere! Hey-great year to increase my bicycling! Enjoy the day!
