Our solstice weekend was spent near the Danish border in the north of Germany. My dad and his girlfriend celebrated their joint 60th birthdays with a big garden party, complete with a midsummer bonfire and singing.




We left late on thursday for the long drive north, spent friday at a beach at the Baltic Sea and saturday at the party before heading back south for a near 9 hour drive on sunday.
Deeply inhaling the salty sea air mixed with wood smoke from a crackling fire outside has recharged my batteries as only sea and fire can do. I needed it so much not only mentally but physically as well. I needed the step back, asking myself what the hell was I thinking overworking myself like I did in the last few weeks. Being a highly sensitive person overexerting myself is dangerously easy and I’m known to come home crying from exhaustion on a hard day. Unfortunately I’m too far from the sea to have its healing powers readily available! Having said this, I’m taking it easy this week, taking my time catching up on blogs and comments, sorting through the photos from last weekend and playing with the video sequences and of course, not working so long and hard. Have a good week!

    Beautiful, beautiful pictures – I feel like I was there, too. I’m glad that you’re feeling recharged. (And that’s so great about all of the views! Don’t forget me when you’re famous. :))

      Thanks Sherrie πŸ™‚ It *was* such a beautiful weekend.
      Haha, I don’t worry my blog is going to get ‘big’, it’s been picked up by StumbleUpon before (though not Freshly Pressed yet). It gets crazy for a couple of days and I enjoy it immensely and then it dies down again pretty quickly and it’ll be cozy and small again which is just fine by me :))
