Summer Solstice Begins June 21st


The beautiful coasts of Stinson Beach will soon be packed with excited beach combers.

Summer officially begins on June 21st, the Northern Hemisphere’s summer solstice. This year, the first day of summer is a Friday, so expect beaches to be full of excited swimmers, ready to have some fun in the sun. The sun’s rays will be dancing across the Northern Hemisphere, while Americans everywhere dance in the sand.

It’s true that the earth goes through cycles and this month the earth’s axis will be tilted 23.5 degrees, the exact tilt it needs to receive more of the sun’s direct rays. We recommend wearing sunblock while enjoying warmer months, as too much sun can be harmful. Summer doesn’t last forever, so be sure to soak it up while you can.

You know what else will benefit from the increase in solar rays? Energy. You can conserve more energy in the summer months, because the sun is out for longer. We recommend investing in some solar items to keep energy consumption down. These are everyday household items that work off the sun’s energy, instead of requiring a draw from your electricity.

    Oh Summer. How I love Washington State this time of year. Gawd, why am I in CA? lol.
    “I’m pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have in fact, caught
    and killed a large predator that supposedly injured some bathers. But as you
    see it’s a beautiful day, the beaches are open and people are having a
    wonderful time. Amity as you know means friendship.”
