the secret season
The seasons that belong to the Southern California coast ebb and flow at a leisurely pace.
Summer stretches out from spring, lengthening the days with a warm, round heat before dipping beneath a sea salt dusk. Laughter fills the late evening air; everyone exhales.
There is no rush to fall in Newport Coast. Once wrapped in summer’s embrace, the landscape holds onto the long, languid hours of each golden afternoon deep into days that would be considered autumn elsewhere.
This is the secret season.
It’s these blissful days in the in between that are such an unexpected delight. There is time to play again once more; summer’s encore.
