Winter solstice

It is well worth getting up at sunrise today as today is the shortest day of the year. In some parts of the world the day will be less than 3hours, in Portugal it is around 9.5hours and in London just under 8hrs. Will you be doing anything to celebrate Winter Solstice?

  1. Serene! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Well, I was but I’m now gnashing my teeth because Jude’s gone to see the lights at Heligan without me. 😦 I didn’t remember it was the Winter Solstice till I was on the way but I’ve been to York today.

      1. What a lovely combination. πŸ™‚ It would be peaceful this time of year too? The fog has finally reached us this morning. Spooky lamplights outside the window. πŸ™‚ Sending Christmas hugs to your Mum, and Robert too, of course.

        1. Yes, there were more cones than people! Didn’t stop though as was my usual drive past.

          Oh thank you I’ll pass them on when she emerges again. She’s made herself a tea and disappeared back to bed. 😊

          Hope your fog disappears soon xx

  2. No sign of the sun this morning, but at least the fog/mist has gone. We are off to see the lights in the Lost Gardens of Heligan tonight, hoping it won’t rain! Our sunset isn’t until around 4:30 so not too bad, but I am looking forward to seeing the daylight hours increase from now on. Happy Winter Solstice Becky – did you capture a sunrise this morning? I haven’t got a sky for you today, but you have a bonus tomorrow πŸ˜€

    1. How was it? Whisper though as Jo is cross you didn’t take her!!!!

      Really it stayed dry. Was a horrid day in Somerset and Hampshire, and Stonehenge looked terribly grey yesterday too.

        1. No just whizzed past, well not exactly a whizz given the amount of traffic. It is the halfway point between my Mum and me, and so always feel likes an achievement once we get there!
