Midnight Picnic

Hello Darlings!

Everybody seem to know that winter days in Alaska are short and cold, but how many of you are aware of how long are Alaskan summer days? Well, the further north you go the longer the days get, so long that in some places the sun doesn’t even set for months. Now, in Anchorage the sunset is around 11:30 pm and the sunrise is about 4:45 am. However, after the sundown we have another 45 minutes of natural light to enjoy. Another interesting facts is that if averaged over an entire year, Alaska gets 10 to 17 minutes more daylight per day than any other state in the lower 48. Check here to see for yourself 🙂

Having long days like these it is an advantage because there are plenty of activities that you can do during the day without worrying about not having enough time. Also, most businesses adjust their working hours and stay open longer in summer time. Plus at the end of the day, you can enjoy a midnight picnic while still having natural light outside. If you are trying to imagine how is to have a picnic at midnight, I invite you to join me for a fruity picnic here below 🙂

    Hi Victoria!

    I love the idea of a midnight picnic! If it was warmer at night here in San Francisco then I would totally do it. Your dress is too cute, love the style! I’ve seen other bloggers wearing it as well, it’s the dress of the moment 🙂

    Make a dash for the Spanish Steps, located on d Street in Dupont Circle. This little lovers’ nook is a prime picnic spot and off-the-radar gem.
