A Place in the Sun






photos by Raya Carlisle

It finally feels like summer weather in Southern California. The warm, sunny days are much appreciated after many gloomy months. I plan on spending the majority of my weekend at the beach, doing yoga, riding my beach cruiser, and visiting with friends. What do you have planned for the weekend? Hope you all have a great one!
