Winter Solstice All To Ourselves

We left the house at 3:40 PM and got to the edge of the Long Island Sound at 4:10 — barely in time to watch the sun set on the shortest day of the year.

Nobody else was on the beach, maybe because of the wind chill that made it feel as if it were 17 degrees — but for me and Top Cat, that only means it’s perfect champagne-drinking weather. The bubbly stays nice and cold — even colder — after you pour it!

Top Cat, chillin’ with the champers.

Bring on the light!

    What a great way to begin the season of renewing sun! I so miss the sun all through the snow and damp darkness that winter gives us. I am close enough to the river and nestled into the mountain and the fog through November-March can some times be so unbearable. So many day I swear it can literally be cut with a knife.
    I did get a glimpse of the red ring around the moon before the eclipse was finished. There was a break in the clouds it was about 3 AM and the moon was about 1/3 visible.
    Thank you for sharing an ocean pic-I so love the ocean. Have had the opportunity to go there a couple times. Once in WA and once in CA.

    Since I live in the intermountain west, the high desert, we don’t have many gray days, hardly ever snows and is mostly sunny every day. The exception has been the last week when we have been deluged with rain, record setting amounts and causing huge problems north of us in Mesquite, NV and Beaverdam, AZ, 10 homes washed away in the flood. I pray for these people living this nightmare.
