I mentioned that I headed out to the coast. Here, June Gloom has been in full force, though it's only May. When compared to the valley's 100 degrees, I have no complaints, whatsoever. I've been asked to share pictures, so here are some images of Laguna Beach. The umbrella is on the brick patio, right outside the door to our room.
And the birds! This had to be a raven, because it was three times the size of any crow I've ever seen. That is a rooftop, with full-sized shingles!
