I also love warm temperatures and sun, but not incredibly hot temperatures and high humidity. On a cruise I took in August, 2001 the temperature was almost always above 40°C (100°F) with humidity being above 90%. When I got out of the air-conditioned indoor areas with my camera, it took half-an-hour before I was able to use the camera as it was heavily steamed-up. I love the winter season in the Caribbean, however.
Of course Tom brings up a very good point: I'm sure he would feel terrible where I live as our summers are colder and wetter than many of his Southern Californian winters. On the other hand, I thought early Summer in Southern California was very hot
from my perspective.
By the way, this year's summer doesn't deserve the name. We've been having rain and chilly temperatures (by North German standards) for six weeks now.
