Though summer doesn’t arrive till Thursday the weather couldn’t wait and we reached 85 degrees today. Along with high temperatures expected all week, the summer solstice will also bring the longest day of the year. In Seattle that means a whopping 16 hours of daylight, with sunrise at 5:11 a.m. and sunset at 9:10 p.m. It rather makes up for those dark, dreary days of winter, don’t you think?
And what better time of year to enjoy the sunset! Driving home last night while the sun was setting we could tell it was special so we swung by a new spot to watch it. These pictures were taken at 9:20.
Look closely and you’ll see the Seattle skyline far off in the distance and Lake Washington shimmering to the right.
I only had my phone with me so the quality of the pictures could be better. Still the sunset speaks for itself.
Looking forward to returning to this spot to enjoy more sunsets of summer with real camera in hand.
