29 Jun The Coldest Summer Yet….
Finishing up my third week here in San Francisco with the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail has been very rewarding and life changing. In the three weeks that I have been out here I have tried to explore every corner of the city and have not even gotten close yet. I have visited a total of seven beaches and five parks located all across the coast from Marin county to Pacifica, California. My heart is in exploring new environments and collecting many fun memories in the old brain of mine. Coming from a small town named Vacaville, California, that at this moment in summer reaches temperatures of 108 degrees, the cold weather out here in San Francisco has me in a sweater all day. I can honestly say that this has been the coldest summer for me yet.
I had a chance to regain some vitamin D from the sun at an event closer to the valley. Me and my supervisor attended a campfire fandango for families to attend at the John Muir National Historic Site located in Martinez, California. At the event they had a full band that played music that had been played during the Juan Bautista de Anza Expedition of 1776. With dancing and activities for the children it was definitely very fun, and more comfortable for me because it was 98 degrees over there. We set up our booth to inform the crowd of the history of the Juan Bautista de Anza Expedition, and to explain it in more detail to the people that came over and asked us questions.
