Winter Solstice Celebration
Embracing the longest night of the year and coaxing back the sun. The sun that mom so desperately misses. We all sat inhaling the yummy goodness of a boat full of beeswax candles, listening to music, reading by candle light, and eating "sun foods" -- mango and pure honey comb.
We spent the next day stringing popcorn and cranberries (though mostly cranberries since we have a little popcorn monster aboard) and then making pine cone and apple bird seed feeders for the local critters. Zach really got in to it this year and LOVED the idea of helping the animals during the cold winter months. And man, has it been COLD!
We found a lonely holly tree in the woods near the marina and garnished it with our goodies.
(p.s. My camera is dead :( Unless there really is a Santa, I am going to be thin on the photos in the coming months. I used Zach's cheapo camera to capture Solstice.)
