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!
