The funny thing about Southern California is while it is usually 90 degrees on Christmas it can very easily be cloudy and a cool 65 degrees on the first day of Summer vacation. Newscasters around here like to call it ‘June Gloom’. But it never stops my kids from diving right in to Summer.

  Disneyland ~ Anaheim, California While visiting the park last week, I looked up and noticed the parade float toppers were Mickey and Minnie inflatables.

SkyWatch Friday: More from Avalon, California

Just a few more shots from Catalina Island (last week)…I can’t help myself! Sometimes when you take shot, you really don’t know what you have until you upload it at home.
