It was hot this weekend, in the 90s, so we decided to go to the only place it is cool in California: the beach! It was a pretty awesome day for it, in the 60’s and foggy which was just what I was looking for – I’m much more of a cold weather person so this everyday sunny and in the 80’s and 90’s wears on me. (30-35C just FYI) But the beach was foggy in the morning and a little sunny in the afternoon so I got some swimming in as well in the brisk water. One day I won’t be amused by my tee-shirt, shorts, and sandals while other Californians are in parkas, but that day is not today.
Since the morning weather wasn’t conducive to swimming, we decided to start off with some reading. About 30 minutes into the reading, we noticed a buzzard circling and started to wonder what was up. A quick search revealed the buzzards desire – a half decomposed seal a dozen feet away; the wind was blowing fast enough that we couldn’t smell it, but decided that it was a good day for a hike instead of hanging out by the seal (No picture included, for which I am certain you are grateful.). We went up and down the beach for about 8 miles and thoroughly enjoyed our time by the water.
