Wednesday in OB (Ocean Beach)

The weather people in San Diego are ridiculous.  Amongst their favorite things to talk about are the "Microclimate Forecasts."  As much as I poke fun at them for their antics, we got a first hand dose of their microclimate today.

We picked up Max from school in Point Loma which is on the San Diego Bay where it was sunny and in the low 70's. My husband suggested we go to the beach.  As we're driving over the hill , we see the fog rolling in.  In less than a minute we went from sunny and 70 to heavy fog with temps in the low 60's.....hello microclimate!

This is Newport Avenue, the main street of Ocean Beach.  It is so foggy that you can't even see the Farmers Market set up on the next block.

Now Max wasn't going to let a little "micro-climate" fog (or 50 degree water temp) effect his ability to have a good time. 

Finally Max realized how cold the water was and decided to take time out to write in the sand.

Now we're back in Point Loma where it's sunny and in the 70's.  Gotta love the San Diego microclimates!
