I can't tell you how nice it is to FINALLY be able to say that.
It seems the sun going down at noon (OK, OK....5:00 in the afternoon) is wearing on me a little worse than usual this year. It's wearing on me so much, that I think I'm going to get up tomorrow morning, grab a blanket to lay on, and just find a spot in the middle of my yard. I'll lay there as long as I can...soaking up as much (50 degree) sunlight as humanly possible.
I thought I'd roll with the outdoors frame of mind, and use it as the afflatus for this weeks Thematic Photographic entry. Thanks to Carmi for providing the inspiration!!!

Taken one evening during a kayak trip on the Upper Iowa River. We finished paddling for the day, went back to the cabin, made some smores and hung out around the campfire.
The sun is going down in this picture at around 9:00 pm or so. I hate summer. The heat, the humidity, the bugs....... But this is one thing about the season I love!!! :-)
