Above normal sea temperatures here have meant little cooling at night. Next month’s utility bill won’t be pretty. So I’ve sought out anything to cool down. Above, looking from Shelter Island, you can see the San Diego Bay meet the Pacific Ocean. The peninsula we call Point Loma rises to the right. On that morning, I fled over there to feel some cool Pacific fog and just gazed at the sea.
Summer tries my patience. I want to enjoy it more, but the heat saps me of energy and sometimes makes me sick. I reschedule walks to try and catch cooler moments.
And when veggies are at their summer peak, you can’t go wrong with a good salad.Romaine lettuce, halved grape tomatoes, chopped red bell pepper, basil, and a cut up Babybel cheese really fit the bill on a hot day.
Hope you’re all staying cool!
