One usable climate - 6/28/2011
No one knows where it is or how to pronounce it. It as small sleepy town that has a wonderful sense of community. Main street welcomes home it's brave with balloons and homemade signs on each porch. There are mountains, creeks, redwoods and of course the beach, all in one local. The weather is what I call neutral. Not too hot and never very cold.
