We have a favorite tradition of celebrating the equinox by noticing the balance of night and day. For the past 4 years we have gotten up early to watch the sunrise over Belfast Bay, then picniced with friends and watch the last summer sunset from the top of Mt. Battie. This year we skipped the sunrise as we had friends visiting from NH (who arrived late the night before) but our sunset picnic was amazing as usual.
Pizza, wine, warm tea, sandwich cookies (half white/half dark--get it?) beautiful weather, good friends, laughing children and amazing views; could there be a better way to welcome my favorite season?
