Unseasonably clear skies and warm weather had dozens out enjoying the sunshine Wednesday morning.

Surfers, families, dogs and photographers lined the shore of Muir Beach Wednesday, soaking in vitamin-D and watching the swells crash, as only the slightest breath of breeze blew. 

Award-winning artist Nanette Biers, set up her office mid-beach, facing north to paint to coastline.

"You don't get many days like this where the wind isn't blowing and the sky is clear of fog," she said. "I just had to take advantage of it."

Joan Brown, owner of Hot Diggity hot dog cart, said: "Since my business operates outside, it has been so much fun to work with this warm weather; I am selling a tons of drinks due to the sunshine."

He admitted, "the profits are bittersweet since we desperately need rain."

Sausalito is also seeing an un-season-like influx of visitors.

"It is definitely busier than it normally is this time of the year," said Sausalito Visitor Center volunteer Julie Warren. "It is just so beautiful, patio dining and bike riding have seen an increase."

"We have noticed business is good right now, especially for winter," said a Sausalito Bakery and Cafe chef. "We just have to enjoy what Mother Nature is giving us."
