Get ready for the long days of sunshine and the shortest nights of the year because the summer solstice has arrived! It's like Mother Nature turned up the brightness dial to the max.
Picture this: Earth's axis is tilted at 23.5 degrees, and during the summer solstice, the Northern Hemisphere gets the VIP treatment. We're talking about direct, in-your-face sunlight that stretches those daylight hours to the limit. It's the perfect excuse to embrace the summer vibes and kick off the season in style.
So, grab your shades, lather on that sunscreen, and get ready to soak up every glorious moment of the summer solstice!
Check out my favorite summer activities!
We're all excited about our upcoming family trip to Avila Beach, San Diego, and Santa Barbara in July. We're beach enthusiasts, and any chance we get, we're soaking up the sun by the shore. Growing up in Monterey County, just a short distance from the beach, it's ingrained in us to be near the ocean.
Of course, summer is also synonymous with popsicles! To beat the heat, we head to the veranda and indulge in the delicious treats at PopBar. They have a wide array of flavors, and you can even have them dipped in chocolate and sprinkles for that extra touch of sweetness.
When it comes to satisfying our sushi cravings, Mikuni at the Veranda is our go-to spot. Their sushi never disappoints, and it's always a treat to enjoy a meal there.
But our summer adventures wouldn't be complete without spending time at the lake. While we visit various lakes, our ultimate favorite is Lake Tahoe. It has become a tradition for us to explore its stunning beauty every summer.
So, this summer, we're ready for beach days, mouthwatering popsicles, delectable sushi, and unforgettable lake adventures. It's the perfect recipe for a memorable and fun-filled season.
