There's an often misattributed/incorrect Mark Twain quote that goes: "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco". If you've lived in SF, or even mentioned visiting, you've probably heard it. I've been guilty blathering on about the weather before, so I'll just say that after enduring the coldest Canadian winters for a large portion of my life, I could never complain.
For the most part, our travels have been dictated by trying to follow the sun. Now that we live in California, and just need to take a short drive south on a gloomy day, it's changed how we think of travel. I almost don't want to leave.
These photos are from an afternoon when we just needed a little Vitamin D. Since we didn't find it in Pacifica, we headed a little further and found a bench overlooking the ocean. I'm grateful to whoever decided to put that lonely bench there. We sat for awhile, explored the coastline, shook the sand out of our shoes, and headed home. - Mina
