Eily’s Report – 8th June

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

The first week of June is already over, in little over another week we will have the longest day of the year on June 21st.  Some years ago accompanied by  two family members we were delighted to be invited to Finland by a guest of my B&B to come and spend that mysterious night with him and his family. They set up the party on their island which was a short boat ride from the mainland. We didn’t go to bed, we wanted to experience the phenomenon first hand. It being so far North, nights can be cold in Finland  but our hosts made sure that we were fully supplied with padded zip up body suits to make sure that nothing was going to spoil the  occasion that we came so far from to see. There was no dawn. The previous day just continued on into the next. Days were brighter but nights were far from being dark and I found it hard to go to sleep but a couple on nights awake soon took care of it and we slept sound after that. During our stay we learned a lot about how they live in Finland and especially on an island. There is never a shortage of fresh fish, they use nets to keep them alive in the sea until they need them but only a few days supply at the time. No need to stock up, the sea is at hand all the time. The sea at that point was dotted with lots of similar islands and at midnight they all lit their fires and waved and greeted one another because of the night that was in it.
