Get ready for an extra hour of sunlight

Daylight saving time is on its way, meaning later sunsets, and more time for evening activities.

The sun sets over Snell Isle. There is water in the foreground and land on either side, with dark trees, boats, and houses sitting in the shade. The sun is reflecting off the blueish water, and there are orange and yellow streaks in a partially cloudy sky as the sun gets lower.

Sunsets are always a good time for reflection.

The clocks are moving forward this weekend, TBAY. That means we have to wait a bit longer to see our gorgeous sunsets every night, but the change will also give us more time to enjoy light-essential fun.

Here are a few ideas for making the most of the extra time while it lasts:

  • Starting this Sunday, March 10, the sun will begin to set after 7 p.m. — and it will stay that way until October. This could be enough time to catch some rays in the sand after work at one of our area’s best beaches.
  • With the sun setting later, you could squeeze in a round of golf in the evening, or maybe just nine holes. We’re spoiled for choice in TBAY.
  • Spend time in the great outdoors at a park, with a good book, a blanket, and some Vitamin D.
