No Such Thing as Bad Weather

Posted by Jody on December 21, 2013

“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.”

~John Ruskin

Looking Toward Pacific Beach and Mission Beach from 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!

    I love the beach on a cold day with snow … but the hurricanes present fairly bad weather on the coast here (sorry, Mr. Ruskin!).
    Have a lovely remainder of your time in SoCal! Post more photos!

    I love deserted beaches and even better with a deserted pier too. Have a merry Christmas Jodie.
