After a long and (by Southern California standards) cold and rainy fall and early winter, we were treated to a glorious day of mild Santa Anas that ushered in warm temps (75-80) and bright clear sunshine.
This was particularly fortuitous as we’re getting visited by one of The Beloved’s best friends and her 12-year old daughter this weekend. They hail from New England and so are pretty darn happy to leave sub-freezing temperatures behind.
Since it was so gorgeous, we decided to head down to the beach – especially since our pre-teen visitor had never been to California or seen the Pacific.
I’d say it worked out pretty well.
