duh! South Africa-- south of the equator

Even after so many posts from Joe in the past few days, it only just dawned on me because of the relatively early sunset times and late sunrises, that he is SOUTH OF THE EQUATOR!!! (2917 km = 1812 miles).

And only 800 miles closer than Warren's Winter Solstice 6/21 post from Australia (4209 km = 2616 miles)
Happy Wintering down there!!

The second longest day

June 22, 2018. Sunset 8:33 PM
Pescadero, CA.

The second longest day of sunlight, Liz and I ring it down along the coast. A rare and wonderful day. We had just sat through 1½ cycles of “Forest (for a thousand years)", a surround sound installation in the woods at UC Santa by Janet Cardiff and Bures. The sounds were so beautifully recorded and convincingly presented, we were transported.

Hi Brenda!
While we were celebrating the longest day, my friend Warren Burt sent this as a reminder of what is to come...

Thank you dear Warren!
