Have We Mentioned The Weather?

Okay, the weather is not the only reason to live here, but it’s certainly a factor. Ocean breezes keep us cool in the summer, and the southern latitude keeps us warm in the winter. Whatever your outdoor activity is, whether golf, tennis, baseball, running, surfing or quiet strolls in the park, you can do it all year long. Tee off in January? Go for it.
