Springtime blooms early and fall rolls in late; and, there are even days in the middle of December that edge up into the low 80s and high 70s. Overall, the year-round averages of midday and evening temperatures are approximately 75 and 55 degrees. And in the spring the ocean heats up quickly, beckoning even the most particular swimmers and sun-worshipers in for a dip.
