No Such Thing as Bad Weather

“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating;
there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”
Do you see what I see?
Yep, that’s a Christmas tree way out there on the end of Crystal Pier!
Ever-funky Pacific Beach, California, was unusually sleepy on the recent stormy afternoon that Greg and I visited. The three mile long (typically lively) boardwalk was as quiet as it could be. The soft sands were completely deserted, and the famous Crystal Pier didn’t entertain even one fisherman. Only a smattering of the customary wet-suited surfers were braving the gray waves.
Dodging bands of frigid rain to reach the end of the pier (heading out and turning back a number of times), we finally decided to just make a run for it. It was well worth it! The Crystal Pier offers fantastic views of the surrounding Southern California beaches and coastline, no matter the weather.
♫ Seems it sometimes rains in Southern California! ♫ San Diego actually has only 42+/- days of rainy weather each year, leaving a whopping 323 days for somewhat less soggy fun at the beach!
