“Sunset is still my favorite color, and rainbow is second” – Mattie Stepanek

Last autumn I started taking our trio for sunset picnics…the joy of living in a country where it gets dark very early in the winter ๐Ÿ™‚ ย The sunset provides some of the most stunning sights in nature, and I challenge you not to be in awe and dream while watching this amazing event take place. ย Being a mamma to three young children and collapsing into my bed as soon as I can at night, the summer sunsets have been rather too late for me living in Sweden!! ย However, they are now returning to a more sociable hour for me, and last night, for our little lady too. ย We took a sneaky trip out on our bikes to watch the sun set for the day (leaving the mini men snoring their little heads off in their beds!). ย In fact twin 2 had already asked me at breakfast that morning if we could have a sunset picnic….”soon” I said, not long to wait now, and I was so happy he remembered the experiences from last autumn, winter, and spring.

We wrapped up, packed our kelly kettle so that we could have a warming brew, and once we’d located the long lost bike lights, we cycled up to the north west point of our island. ย It was so lovely to head out just the 2 of us, for this peaceful and calming experience. ย We sat there, in almost silence, holding our hot chocolates, and watching the sun saying goodnight for the day as it sank into the sea below our horizon.

This is a really easy mini adventure that I think all children should experience every so often as part of their immersion in nature, that in turn helps towards making them more aware of their environment and wanting to care for it and its future. ย It helps nurture their love of nature. It teaches them to enjoy the simple things in life, living in the present moment, whilst instilling a sense of awe and adventure….part of the excitement for our little lady was also the ride home in the dark! ย It’s a time together with your child/children that definitely allows bonding and strengthening of relationships, as well as providing cherished memories.

I can see there will be a lot of sunset picnics coming up in the next few months as our seasons change, and so do the views and light cast by this spectacle. ย We may be eating our food in gloves and woolly hats soon, but my three wouldn’t miss these for the world, and that makes me happy!

  1. Your sunsets are beautiful beyond belief. I love being by the coast here at sunset too but it is that little bit later and always clashes with club pick ups and the like and we rarely get there. Seeing these gorgeous photos I must make the effort to have a beach sunset picnic. That Kelly Kettle looks like a good investment too.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

      It is so lovely now they are earlier in the day (and will get earlier still!). We adore our kelly kettle, and have so much fun with it, and the children are quite happy using it too now ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Am absolutely loving the idea of sunset picnics…..we are not too far away from the beach or the countryside and some of the sunsets are stunning. Watch this space!! #countrykids

  4. Oh your sunset photos are absolutely stunning. I’ve not yet found any good places locally to get really nice sunset views but it’s something I love to do with my girls when I can. I love the quote you started your post with too – sunset colours are so beautiful. #countrykids

  5. What an amazing thing to do. The sunset is just stunning, and your photos are too. You’ve inspired me to try and organise an outing with my guys to watch the sunset too. #countrykids

  6. They’re so beautiful. We should really go up to the top of our hill to see a sunset, but the thought of walking up there ,and then back in the dark isn’t appealing #countrykids

      Yes, it’s a bit of effort! But after the sun has set you have around 30 mins before it goes dark and you can admire the beautiful colours as the sky changes along the way ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Oh what a lovely idea. We are a very outdoors-y family and we always stop to look at the sunset if we’re out and about but we’ve never gone out specifically to do a sunset picnic. I think I’m going to have to try this out. #sharingthebloglove
