Where the Russian River meets the Pacific OceanBy

The Pacific Ocean of California is VERY different from the same body of water we experience here in Hawaii. Where our water is warm & inviting, it is real cold & gnarly there. The winds that come of the ocean there are therefore quite chilling….& it follows the cut in the mountains by the various rivers such as this one to create very different climatic conditions, especially during the respective growing seasons.
