The weather was uncomfortably hot while we were in California and the day we decided to check out Claremont was no different. Georgia practically melted to her car seat and was covered in sweat before we could close the car door. McKay's cheeses didn't stand a chance in the inferno. It was so hot that we went from air conditioner to air conditioner most of our trip. After being reclusive, we decided to risk it all and brave the heat to enjoy a leisurely stroll on a lazy afternoon. Banyan took a rest to rehydrate while Georgia ran down the street. McKay disappeared into the local record shop and I stood there soaking up the dry heat.
