I should be planning and getting ready for my month long trip to Oahu in August, but I've been spending time and money (allocated for Hawaii) hanging out at the beach cities in Orange County. Yesterday I was at San Clemente where it was about 76 degrees then had dinner in Newport Beach where it was 70. The only thing comparable was Kona in the winter, when it was 75 at dinner time. I love that kind of weather. I'm already thinking of next year and decided I'll spend several weeks staying in towns from San Diego to Santa Barbara or spend it on Kauai, Maui, with a stop on Oahu in between. I love the mild, low humidity of the coast in the Summer, but also love the culture and people of the islands. What would you do?
