If you are looking for sun the is no better place than Southern California. Meredith lived in San Clemente for a while and we took this picture while exploring Temecula which is an old town in Riverside County. The area was inhabited by Native Americans for hundreds of years until the Spanish showed up in the late 1700’s.
Today it is a fairly large and affluent city but away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles or San Diego. It is hot and arid and great for growing grapes as evidenced by all the wineries in the area. Tourism makes up much of the economy due to the wineries, Old Town Temecula, and several golf courses and resorts. Perhaps we’ll go back out there when we can stay a while.
