As I was sifting through old photos I found these. (Apologies for the quality, most were taken with a cell phone.)
With the weather shifting from 10° to 20°, and barely being able to feel my toes, I often find my mind wandering off to the beach and leaving my body behind. These were taken in sunny Californ-i-ay, years ago, on the shores of Laguna Beach and Santa Barbara. Only a few more months to go people! Can't wait for Summer.
