nothing beats a west coast summer.
it's highlighted by clear blue skies, bright shining sun, amazingly perfect 25 degree temperatures, and long days. the air is clean, easy to breathe, filled with not much more than the salt of the ocean from which it gets its moisture. fellow west coasters are out and about in droves walking along beaches, walkways and piers, hiking trails and mountains, kayaking, running, riding, and frequenting weekend festivals. incredible fireworks can be seen twice a week for a couple of weeks in july, in addition to the traditional long weekend celebrations. people come here to vacation. there are no scorching temperatures, smog alerts, or humidity advisaries. you don't need air conditioning.
but the best part of it all?
eating fish and chips at the beach.
