Cold, Wind, and Snow in Southern California

This past weekend, my in-laws were still in town and we had a great time. Here are a few of the sights and sounds we experienced on our adventure, starting in Marina Del Rey.









After, we headed over to Venice Beach.









That evening, we went to The Grove shopping center to see the holiday spectacular.











Then it started to snow (its fake snow . . . they spray it from the roof tops)ha!






The following day . . . it was a cold and cloudy day In Los Angeles. We decided to head south on Pacific Coast Highway.

These were taken in Huntington Beach, California.





We continued south on Pacific Coat Highway to Newport Beach.







After the sun had set, we drove to Balboa Island.







See, it is not always warm in Southern California, ha! I hope your weekend was an adventure too. The Holidays will soon be here, can you believe it?

How weird is that that you would encounter snow in southern Cal! Seems you experienced a bit of all the season's weather. Photos also reflect what had to have been a very enjoyable time.
