Watching the waves break on a Hawaiian beach is some people’s idea of a good way to spend the Winter Solstice, but travel is out of the question for many this year thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, we can dream, and Salish Current readers sent in their thoughts on where they would like to be on what is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
Readers were invited to share their ideal locations for marking December’s Solstice this year … if it weren’t for COVID-19. Read on, for a travelogue of cherished spots around the globe (and please note, that as lovely as these are, the views expressed in the essays, analyses and opinions as Community Voices are those of the authors exclusively and not those of Salish Current).
Readers write, too! Views expressed in the essays, analyses, letters and opinions are those of the authors exclusively and not those of Salish Current.
