Nor Cal Winter

Since coming back from Budapest last month, I've been spending some time in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I can't complain too much about the winter!  It's not the Southern California winters I'm more used to, but this year has been unseasonably warm.  Of course we're in the midst of an epic drought here in California, so some more rain would be appreciated, but there has been enough to make the hills green anyway.

Here is yesterday at Briones Regional Park in the East Bay:

I've also been doing a fair bit of surfing up here this winter, in my brand new 4 mm wetsuit, just right for the Nor Cal conditions.  Recently I braved the temperamental locals down at Rockaway Beach in Pacifica.

Overall, Northern California is a pretty nice place to spend some time and I'm getting a fair bit of writing done, too.  Maybe I'll write a post about my favorite writing cafes that I've discovered while I'm here...

For now, I'll hope for rain (and snow in the mountains), but still enjoy the sunshine while I can!
