The Love Shack as the afternoon sun begins to set in Girdwood.
Happy Winter Solstice!
Twelve is a big number. Between today and January 1, we will gain twelve wonderful minutes of daylight -which is a very big deal considering that the sun will set today around 3:41 p.m. Surrounded by all of this snow it’s hard to believe that Winter officially only BEGINS today in the Northern Hemisphere. I’ve always happily looked at Winter Solstice as the beginning of the end. Today is one of Daddy-O’s favorite Holidays, second only to sometime in the Spring, when we spot the first Seagull returning. In Anchorage, when the Seagulls replace the Ravens it is a true sign of warmer and brighter days ahead.
