The last weekend in August...

Friday and Saturday of last week had blistering temperatures. Yes, 95-100F is blistering for anyone, even me, who prefers the sun over cloud any day. On Saturday afternoon, we headed to the beach along with most of the surrounding population. The drive was slow but the car had a/c so no complaints. The closest beach was packed and had no parking spaces left... let alone grills for BBQ'ing.

We then drove south another 10 miles to another state beach and although it was crowded, there were parking spaces and a few grills open. A dinner of hot-dogs and chips and s'mores was just what we all need to end our last weekend of August. It was 99F at our house and only 69F at the beach:-) The fog started rolling in about 7pm and the temps just dropped after that.

My man:-)


Next weekend is Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer. I have really enjoyed this summer since the last two summers were spent in a fog of confusion and sorrow. Here's to an autumn of new beginnings and joy...

What a wonderful day! It's funny--we've been rejoicing it was ONLY a high of 94 yesterday! It's been so hot here. But the last few days it's actually been pretty nice in the mornings.

Nice pics. Was the water warm/semi-warm to swim in? I wish I had the ocean ALOT closer to me than it is....it's over 4 hours away to the north and 12 hours to the south. You have it good being in sunny California. Can't wait to get down there next year!
