Midsummer Eve

It was a fantastically beautiful warm Midsummer Eve. Sunshine all day long from practically clear blue skies. Day temperature about 27 degrees Celsius. In the evening and night it was still over 20. At about 10 pm we went down to the lake to enjoy the sunset. Usually there is the the midsummer bonfire and a lot of people. But, as I mentioned In my previous post, the bonfires were not allowed this time because it has been so dry. There was only a few others more than us.

Midsummer Sunset

At 10:45 pm about one hour before sunset here in the south of Finland.

Also this year our friends invited us to celebrate the Midsummer at their summer place. We had a great time.  Thank you, dear friends, so much for having us 🙂

Today the summer solstice takes place. Here in the south of Finland the sunrise is at 3:54 am, sunset at 22:50. Dusk to dawn is 1:52 minutes.
