Solstice Party

The longest day of the year inspires many things … photography, mass yoga gatherings, 5k races, dances, and parties.  My friends held a Solstice Party, a wonderful celebration of summer, family, and friends.

We enjoyed great food and drink in a beautiful outdoor setting.  Children played, adults laughed, and everyone danced, waving sparklers and glow sticks around with abandon.  All this and a lovely garden tour, too.

I wish I could say that I had taken photos to capture all those moments, but it’s hard to dance and shoot pics at the same time.

Hopefully, you’ll enjoy these, taken earlier in the evening.

    • I’d been to a women’s solstice gathering before, but this one was even better. Somehow they achieved the perfect combo of kids and adults.

  1. HA! what a NICE surprise, thanks LB! I like that he’s winking and that he’s confident enough to sit that close to a bee hive! Very Cute! Maybe the Gnomes bravery was inspiration for that cool beverage container. You’ve captured it so well. I know how hard it is to get a good photo of a glass container without getting yourself in the photo or shadows from light reflections. I have a hard time photographing my own Gnome Home for that reason. Sounds like you’ve pre-emted July 1st….good warm up event!

    • So glad you noticed the glass containers! I kinda liked the way those photos turned out. And the one with cucumber, basil and mint was so yummy. I need to keep that around the house.

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
