Visitors to the Bay Area ask me what it's like to live in a climate that doesn't have distinctive seasons. We do too have seasons. They just get a little mixed up is all. So far, we've had winter days in spring that have slopped over into summer. Spring came in a few days before summer officially started, then the summer fog rolled in and it felt like winter until about noon when the sun came out and our clothing layers come off. Now we're looking at falling leaves, cool, foggy nights and mornings, and warm, warm afternoons. The presence of Orb spiders on the bushes and cottontails on the trails announce that autumn is around the corner. But before we pack up our summer clothing, our indian summer, if it's true to form, will give us some of the hottest days of the year.
That being said, it's a good idea to plan for both indoor and outdoor fun in the Bay Area, cause you never know what mom nature will be cooking up. Here's a few ideas, and bring remember to bring a coat:
