Sunday night we went to the beach to watch the sunset. Big Dude brought along his propane "stove" and camping coffee kettle. He made us all hot chocolate to go with yummy Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's (like Oreo cookies with peppermint filling). Mind you, we didn't need hot chocolate because we were cold. Oh no. We were wearing t-shirts and shorts even after the sun was long gone. It's been in the mid to high 90s for the last 10 days. The hot chocolate was just for fun. And the sunset was beautiful. The dark red strip you see at the horizon in all these photos is actually the smoke from the SoCal fires.
