Longest day of the year
June 21st as you know is the longest day of the year, but never have I felt the length of a day like I do here in the United Kingdom. The official sunrise time on June 21st was 4:28 and the sunset time was 9:48, but this photo of the sky taken at 10:30 shows that the sun still has a ways to go before we've seen its end to the workday. The extra sunlight is a nice trade off for the lack of it in the winter, though convincing Maggie and Belle that wake-up time is not at 4:30 is something we're still working on.
