What incredible colors, details, POV and lighting, Donna! This is a place I have to go in April next year. Is April the best? Do you have fog in the summer? always! Deb

Thank you everyone for your very nice comments.

I find that the sunsets in January and February are very colorful! March and April sunsets are usually beautiful too. We don't have fog in the summer, but we do get a heavy marine layer that blocks the sunset. It is difficult to predict the weather in June and July.

There are webcams set up along the California coast, mostly for surfing. I live 10 miles inland from the beach, these cameras help me to see if it is overcast on the coast, when we have sunny weather inland.

I hope this helps Deb!!! It would be an honor to meet you!! Kathy Cline has planned a return visit in the middle of March. We went to the Carlsbad Flower Fields, the Wild Animal Park and the beach on her visit this year.

Thanks again to each of you for your constant inspiration and support!!!

Take care,
