Marine Layer

Temperatures in triple digits sent us over to the beach again this weekend.
We went back to Rio Del Mar beach arriving before the sun had burnt off the marine layer.

The boys spent the entire day in the water, coming out only for brief refreshment breaks. The weather and water were so lovely even I made it into the water.

While we were at the beach there must have been a lot of fish close to the shore because the water within 50' of the shore was packed with wildlife. We saw literally dozens and dozens of seals, some eating fish, some surfing the waves like we were. There were also a lot of pelicans feeding, and even a pod of dolphins. I have never seen so many seals in one place, and shortly before we left the beach, all the seals disappeared too. I guess that the fish had also moved on.
