Midsummer found us not in Sweden, but in the French countryside, south of the Loire Valley and not far from Loches. If you remember going to bed as a child when the sky was still light, this is the adult version. The sun sets around 11:30pm in this quiet part of France, made lush with rain and wind. The cold prevented us from any midsummer-related outdoor frolicking, but there was plenty of wine indoors.
