Pacific Living

Great outdoors, culinary delights, great people

Autumn around the corner, but not yet!

As parents embark on the well worn ritual of preparing their children, young and older, for school to last refrains of summer’s song – here in California, we wait for our Indian Summer. It has been a “normal” summer so far — hot inland and cool on the coast. There are subtle changes – like the marine layer creeping in farther inland than in years before – in fact, I remember when there was at least a 10 degree difference in temperature just by going from San Francisco to across the Bay to Oakland.  This year, San Francisco has kept pace with temperatures in the 70s  — that almost never happened until September!

Still, friends from all over the globe have stopped by – happy faces, fully set to go on with their love affair with California north & south. We just give them the keys to the house; a good GPS route – they get into their Zipcars and they are off to adventure & beauty!
