While the East Coast was being blizzarded…

The sun came out in Southern California just in time for our visit. (Contrary to popular belief, it is not sunny all 365 days of the year there. For a few weeks in the wintertime it rains on and off. This is called “bad weather” and few people venture outside.)

So while a massive snowstorm was getting ready to hurl itself all over every state between (and including) Maine and Georgia, we were taking a pleasant walk on the beach.

Admittedly, the water was far too cold for swimming, and one’s feet got so chilled that one had to stand in a bathtub of warm water before one could feel one’s toes again. However…

It was worth it.

There was even a rainbow (you can see it faintly below).

December 23, ladies and gents.

End of the sunset series.

More California photos to come!
