California is experiencing a rather cool summer this year (averaging 80 or so degrees) by local standards although to a Brit it does seem rather toasty. This weekend we are planning to spend some time at the beach with the amount of fog we will experience being the subject of much debate. Considering Americans ask about England being foggy it comes as a bit of a shock to them that the bay area and its fog is a pleasant surprise to a holidaying Brit (although it does disappoint some tourists). The bay area in summer greets most days with a thick blanket of fog which can be a bit disconcerting until one realises that within a couple of hours a blue sky and bright sunshine are guaranteed....a pretty good combo don't you think?
