Amazingly mild for our area this time of the year. It's only been in the low to upper 70s here. Normally, it is way beyond 80F, with humidity to match or beyond.

I'll take what is dished out because our house isn't air-conditioned and any mild weather makes life sooooo much more pleasant.

One of my delicious pleasures is sleeping with the sleeping porch (which is right off our bedroom) door open. I so love the "night sounds." Nothing like hearing the tree frogs and crickets as you go to sleep. Takes me back to our fabulous camping days.

Thunderstorms in the distance (Nevada), temps in the 70's and a nice breeze.

That was taken from near the 8th Street lifeguard station in Hermosa Beach, looking pretty much due south.

The hill in the distance is the Palos Verdes Peninsula, which forms the southern end of the Santa Monica Bay and separates us from San Pedro and Long Beach.

In the distance to the right of the peninsula you can see the northern tip of Catalina Island (26 miles across the sea).

This map should help orient you:

Monsoom came earlier this year. Generally in eastern part of India monsoon comes at the middle of June but this year monsoon came yesterday with continuous heavy rain.
