Total eclipse summer solstice
OK, the moon appeared, emerged dramatically between the trees and clouds, still 80 per cent eclipsed, the dark side being dark rusty red-brown and the lit side bright white -- awesome.

Brilliant sunshine. I finalised the 2012 astronomical pocket diary for the iphone (english and german) and had a sunbath in the early afternoon. The sea is azure blue, cloudless sky. My trousers are on the line, i had to re-wash them because they stank after my first washing attempt -- some one added his extremely smelly clothing in my wash bucket, and it had soaked two days. There is free water in abundance, so i gave it 5 rinses. The acme wringer came in handy.
