A Sip of the Sun

Last night we drove up to the North Cape to view the midnight sun and enjoy a glass of wine.  The sun was behind scattered clouds, lighting up the nighttime sky.  Oh, and did I mention it was 20 C? What a night!

    Sounds like a wonderful experience. Glad you were able to get away and enjoy. I love the picture through the wine glass.

    So beautiful — and the last image is absolutely perfect!

    We don’t have 24 hour daylight in the Bergen area, but I couldn’t sleep last night and realized that it was the first “night” of the year of no actual darkness, just an hour or so of that magical twilight before the dawn began, accompanied by the chorus of birds.

    There’s a lot of **living** going on in our parts of the world during these intense days, isn’t there?!

    Heard about the Land of the Midnight Sun? Here’s a sneak peek at how it actually looks like from Norway.
