          I was looking at a site that discussed the average weather there and it looks like the average high there is around mid-high 60's for the summer months...does that sound correct? My husband would love this and I am really trying to surprise him. He prefers it to be cooler. I still like to hike and walk the beaches so we are trying to find a happy medium. Most importantly we like to see animals. Any suggestions for the best time of year to come?
