For this challenge, our own Carol Longacre created a gorgeous scene that combines so many wonderful things about summer! Blue skies with just a few cotton-puff clouds, a cooling breeze, green trees, and getting to play outside with kites...definitely summer, and definitely fun, right?!?
One of my favorite things to do in summer is to head to the beach! Now, Northern California beaches are a totally different thing from Southern California beaches (the ones you see in movies). Here our beaches are largely rocky instead of sandy, and most of the time, they are foggy and cold. But the rockiness means we have lots of tidepools and what-not to explore, and the cold ocean fog is the very best natural air conditioning!
