Celebrating the Solstice on Ocracoke Island

Celebrating the Solstice is a big deal to me! We tried for the bonfire on Saturday evening, but the storm clouds pushed us all off the beach! (Actually we never even got that far!)

By Sunday late afternoon, it was certain the bonfire would happen. We hauled wood and hot dogs and marshmallows out to the beach (along with our permit!) and had a wonderful evening.

We had forty some friends join us as we told stories and laughed and sat around the fire. I realize this photo makes it look as if no one was in attendance, but we had just put Sundae's Christmas tree on the fire and cleared the space for the burning!

I hope your weekend was a wonderful celebration of family and friends and a time to welcome summer back into our lives.

Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie--
True Poems flee--
