This summer we’re celebrating California at Traveling Moms, and since I’m a Cali girl also celebrating my birthday this week, I decided to share a photo of me doing my favorite California sport, surfing!  The beaches are many and the waves plenty enough to share.  Here’s a local’s tip: June and July can still be overcast and gloomy, so the best time to visit southern California is late summer and on in to September and even October, when the clouds and tourists disappear, and the water is still warm!
