St. Petersburg, Russia

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.....this proves it...........

I made a little sign because I was afraid we would forget the exact time.
This was the view of St. Petersburg, from our balcony on the ship at 11:20 pm!!!  

 One of our tour guides told us that late June has the shortest day of the year with only three hours of twilight---it doesn't even  get really dark at that time of the year.  We couldn't believe our eyes...and it was hard to not sit outside much longer---it just didn't feel right to go inside and go to bed when it looked like it was still suppertime!

Tallinn, Estonia, next stop!
