Summer in Central California is wonderful, it really is. But it’s also really hot, like on the verge of, ‘I’m melting from the inside out & I may actually be dying’ hot.

With that said, we really have it quite good around here. Mountains, lakes, big cities, small towns, and the ocean practically in our backyard. It’s what weekend getaway dreams are made of.
According to the calendar, our wonderfully hot & sweaty summer is coming to an end. We’ve been hiking, swimming, barefoot bbq’ing fools these past 94 days.
