The day that never ends

The midnight sun and bright summer nights are here. The sea turns bronze, snowy patches on high peaks bathe in peach, white walls glow with gold. Whenever ocean winds blow, rain glitters silver against a sky turned fifty shades of grey. The light makes us crazy, happy, full of energy—luring us out to sea, up mountains and out to night-time festivals. We can always sleep come winter.
