I grew up the Pacific Northwest with water everywhere but pretty chilly (er….refreshing), even in the hottest of days. Down in Los Angeles the water heats up to a super comfortable temperature of around 70 degrees which feels insanely delicous. We went to El Segundo this weekend to avoid big crowds that Redondo or Malibu have. Because I’m near the end of my hip surgery recovery and still can’t swim or be submerged in the water for another three weeks I only waded in the water—but it felt amazing! The kid rolled around in the surf and had even more fun. As an added bonus, there were some fisherman there who showed him how to catch little sand crabs (more like sand fleas) for bait. Our day was fabulous, we even managed to catch a funny little classic car show with some cool LA tricked out classic cars on the way there.
