We are experiencing Santa Ana conditions here in Orange County, and basically what it means is there is an off shore flow or wind. The prevailing winds generally come from the ocean which keeps the area very cool. Yesterday and for the next few days we are experiencing Santa Ana conditions, so that means it will be windy, the temperatures will increase and there is increase fire danger.  This is a photo of the Newport Shores neighborhood in Newport Beach - there is currently no wind, but it is fairly warm right now, even at 7:15 am.

Did you vote today? Voting is a privledge and a right and I everyone got out and voted. I did research through the candidates as well as the measures in our local area, and yes I did vote. The polling location was located in my neighborhood in Newport Shores in Newport Beach, so I just walked there this morning with my daughter. We took the time to research the individual candidates and the measures. I was concerned about certain ones that might increase taxes and traffic. I hope you all took the time to go out and vote today. If you are on the West Coast, there is still time. Happy Tuesday!

I am sure many of you have heard of the Wedge in Newport Beach, it is a very popular area, that because of the direction it faces, with a south swell, the waves can be huge. It is amazing, and love to take photos of this area. Even if the waves are not big, it is still impressive. The Wedge is located on the end of the Balboa Peninsula at Peninsula Point in Newport Beach. Hope you all had a wonderful Wednesday! Enjoy your week.
