Winter in Southern California might not have tons of snow (at least at the beach), but we do enjoy our winters. Here in San Diego, we really don't have traditional seasons, but things do change. Yes, we're babies when it comes to cold. We wear UGG boots if the weather is in the 60's and I literally have to bring a blanket with me to pick up kids from practices in the evenings because I am freezing. Even my transplant friends adjust to the perpetual 70 degree weather and feel the pinch if it dips below. All kidding aside, we are incredibly lucky to have most of our days be outdoor days. I am so grateful to be able to be able to see the sun most days. Our lives are truly based on it, and I appreciate it every day. Here are a few ways we spend our winters in So Cal:
Even though my daughter and I are just summer surfers, we still enjoy taking a walk with the boys on the beach. The beach is probably my absolute favorite thing about So Cal.
Sunset walks with my littles are another favorite. This is a shot of Torrey Pines State Reserve, seriously one of the most beautiful hikes in San Diego.
Water sports are another benefit of Southern California! My daughter and a few of her friends went tubing (with wetsuits)!
Outdoor fun keeps going with my little guy catching some air. Skateboarding is HUGE here in Southern California. Even though I literally cringe each time he does a trick, I love seeing how much he loves it!
