Winter Solstice

Today is the winter solstice ie. the shortest day of the year when we in the southern hemisphere are tilted furthest away from the sun. You folks in the northern hemisphere, being tilted closest to the sun, are enjoying the longest day of the year. While this is technically the beginning of winter for us, the days really only get longer from here. It's pretty close to dark when we cycle home at 5pm and I'll look forward to our evening walks in daylight once again.

  1. On GOBA last Monday, we were packed and on the road by 6:05 am. Decided that we could have only managed another 10-15 minutes earlier without lights on the bikes. Dark and sleep by about 9:30 pm. Quite a contrast to your short days.
