Though summer is coming to a close in department stores, here in Los Angeles it’s going strong. We’re hitting record temps these past few days! I’ve been living in tank tops and shorts– even my much-loved maxi skirts offer a bit too much coverage. Though I admit that I’ve been eyeing the pumpkin spice candles that seem to be popping up on shelves everywhere, I’m really enjoying our little paradise.
Each Saturday morning we wake up slowly, and throw sunscreen, beach towels, waterproof speakers, and our beloved cribbage board into a canvas tote.
The water has been surprisingly warm and inviting, but of course it’s always hard to make that first bold move underwater. Best to wait until you’re nice and toasty on the sand, so you can appreciate a little chilly refresher.
We dive into the waves and feel them rush over our backs as we swim. Sometimes, I feel like a little kid when I’m at the beach. I can’t stop giggling! How is your summer coming to a close? Is it still warm where you are? Any trips left before we embrace fall?
We’re headed up to The Bay this weekend for wine tasting and sight seeing. I can’t wait! I just love San Francisco.
