The Second Day of Summer

Thursday, June 22, 2017

I took a walk outside before lunch and took the pictures below of the beautiful blue sky with these white wispy clouds floating by.

Some of the flowers Tom has planted around the yard.

I had lunch and before I could get the above pictures added and the blog posted the clouds pictured below moved in. Looks like the 44% chance of rain predicted for today is going to happen. Tom is presently outside cutting grass I feel like he is fighting a losing battle this summer.

On the bright side because of all the rain we have not been able to have gravel delivered to move the Stinger B on to...sooooo we are saving money. I guess the quote that would work well here is: "Every Cloud has a Silver Lining".

Today was the perfect first day of summer. We had a beautiful blue, blue sky all day. The clouds showed up on the horizon as the sun was setting on the longest day of the year.

The Escanaba Harbor Light.

The sun dropped behind the clouds on the horizon as
I took the picture of the Harbor Light.

Last little bit of light.


Hope the summer sun is shining down on you today!

If you have a moment we would enjoy hearing from you.


  1. It looks like we gonna have a pretty good summer, and the lawn mowing is a loosing battle, but looks nice when it is freshly cut. Enjoy some more wonderful weather.

    1. The lawn does look nice after it is freshly cut and the smell of newly cut grass is always welcome.

  2. Didn't have the great summer solstice that you did but I know there will be great days ahead. Nice flowers in your garden, very pretty and lovely sky pics.
