Can you believe it's been a week since I've gone to the beach? That's way too long to be away. Granted, the weather hasn't been that nice, but the sun has come back out and is starting to get hot again. I checked the conditions over at Newport: 2-4 ft. with fair conditions, water temps in the low 70s. That is almost hot by Southern California standards. I remember last year, I got excited when it was mid to upper 60s. Yay for global warming.
