Summer Solstice...a bittersweet affair!
The sun was long gone when I left the bakery at 11pm the other night, but driving to my little home on the bluff 7 miles to the west revealed what I love so much about living on this side of town, especially as the the longest day approaches. the sun doesn't go down until after midnight! Sadly, because now the days will slowly get shorter it carries with it a little foreboding of what is to come.
This season also signals the time for John to leave for Bristol Bay to fish for red salmon...it sounds like the run is early, and if it continues, could break records. That would be good.
The 'red run' at the Bakery is just beginning in earnest...it's been hit or miss since our big Memorial Weekend, but we are in it to win it now! What was it you wanted? A skinny 1/2 decaf 1/2 regular soy cappucino with half a shot of hazlenut and half a shot of sugar free vanilla? No Problem!
