I used to take my boat out at dawn during the thickest fog, cut the motor about 2 miles out, then drift and decompress. It' very peaceful.

I've lived here a dozen or so years. I ride my bicycle to work in southern OC every work day regardless of weather, so I pay attention to the weather more than most people driving enclosed cages to work. I keep a web journal that records time, distance and weather conditions on every bike commute, and the words most often written over the past 12 years to describe May or June conditions are dreary, overcast, drizzle and clouds. Even here in Lake Forest, 15 miles inland, the heavy marine layer hangs onto the hillsides and drops mist and drizzle for days on end. It stays around 62F day and night, which is about the same temp as the ocean water at this time of year. No biggie, it breaks up now and then and the sun pops out for a few days.

It would be. Couldn't do that with my sail boat. No wind. Had to settle for walking down to the beach less than a block away.

That's so cool I used to have a Bayliner 192 w/cuddy and we'd launch it from the backbay area of Newport and cruise up & down the local coastline or cross over to Catalina. I don't think I'd ever take it out purposely during a heavy fog though. My hat's off to the courageous captain!!

Things weren't so busy in the Dana Point area 40 years ago.

Yeah, and I've come down with this stubborn cold for over a week.. not a good add-on to the May Gray.

I was coming back from the vegas a few days ago and noticed that there was no marine layer past the santa ana mountains, once I entered the santa ana canyon the marine layer was present.

We OCers (I was raised there) know better than to go to San Francisco any time, especially in the summer.

People from DC should not be wearing sweatshirts in this weather. They should be used to it. I love May Gray and June Gloom.

The cooler May & June days are about the best weather OC gets! December is pretty nice too. Most of the time it is too hot unless one is near the coast.
