During the days I would dream of traveling to California (before I knew I would be living here!!) I always imagined it in a constant state of 80 degree beach weather. Since moving here I have discovered that is not true. They may not have seasons as obvious as in Michigan but they definitely still have seasons. The sun is always out but, during their "winter" it is not hot enough to lay at the beach. It is now though and we are living here every minute we can!
