Along the central California coast, the marine layer can extend inland. There are days when the skies are grey, and “sunny California” exists as a memory. Inland, the layer breaks up, but along the coast and tucked into the edges of the mountains, it can be depressingly dull. As a result, “May Grey” and “June Gloom” are my least favorite times to be on the coast, and am very glad I moved one valley inland!
This is Mount Boney, found in the Santa Monica Mountains, south of Newbury Park.
