We drove west and south to Palos Verdes Penninsula, hoping to get out of the smoke from the fires. The sky above the Pacific Ocean tried so hard to be blue, but mostly it was gray. We could see the top of Catalina Island in the distance but most of it was obscured by the smokey haze that had settled along the coast.
All the way back north to Ventura County along the coast road we looked out over gray water and a fiery orange sunset.
I am so thankful that we are back to the Southern California days of beach umbrellas
