The Northern California Coast is a beautiful place in all types of weather.  On stormy days you may be lucky enough to watch the storm come in while sitting on the window seat or soaking in the hot tub.  Drive or walk to the bluff trail and feel the energy in the air and watch the waves crash with so much force into the cliffs that the little bays fill with white foam.   If action is more your style, I recommend taking a workshop that opens you to a new experience or getting some exercise out of the rain.
