I finally have recovered from pneumonia! It has been one long month since I have been able to take the dogs out or go hiking.
I found this wonderful waterfall to hike and we had planned on going there but when I looked up the weather for San Diego County I noticed that the waterfall hike and the weather temperature was supposed to be in the high 90’s. Way to hot for a six mile hike. Might have to wait for fall for that one.
In our county the temperatures can vary greatly especially this time of year. Our marine layer of fog has been thick at the beach. The mountains and desert have been sunny and sometimes into the triple digits. So I decided to plan the day looking at what the temperatures were going to be. Yesterday it was calling for 105 in the desert in SD county, the mountains in the high 90’s and the beach in the 60’s.
We decided to beat the heat yesterday and head for the beach with the dogs. My two sons and daughter in law joined us.
I wore shorts and a tank top, which was a mistake. I needed a light jacket. They always say dress in layers for San Diego County, because you will either have to add layers or take them off. You never know. You’d think a native would know this…
We drove up the coast about 20 miles from the house where the beaches are less crowded. They also allow dogs on the beach here, as they don’t where I live.
The marine layer of fog stayed all day, with at times rays of sun coming through. The guys had planned on going swimming, but were only able to get the shorts wet. It was way too cold for water.
We ended up by taking a long walk down the beach, I got some cool looking rocks for my aquarium and my daughter in law and I took a lot of pictures. We had a picnic and stayed for a few hours then headed back home. What a fun day it was though. The dogs really enjoyed it, no sun, and cool weather. They were really in their element.
Anyway, here are a few photos I snapped, I hope you enjoy.
