In late June 2006 my husband, Ken, and I flew to San Jose, California for a birthday/family reunion. This photo shows the fog that blankets the Pacific coast on summer mornings. The water in the Pacific Ocean is so cold the moisture in the air condenses and thick fog is produced. When our family visited the west coast in July 1996 we told the kids that they would not be able to swim in the ocean because it was too cold. Our son must have not believed us because he took off running into the water. I'll never forget hearing him yell and come to a dead stop when his feet hit the water!
