Sand, surf, sanguine sun.

We're in southern California for a few days, and while the mercury is in the high 80s, the air quality is less than optimum because of the wildfires to the north and east of us. The particulate matter in the air has lent a strange, vaguely ominous reddish cast to the sunlight, and a light dusting of fine ash covered the rental car when we woke up in Hermosa Beach this morning. 

But, hey... I'm not complaining. It's the beach.

Which is better than the 45-degree temperatures and sideways rain back in Seattle.
