I knew that it was going to be a cloudless sunset, but I went anyway. While strolling up and down this pebble beach at Lunada Bay to settle in, I paid attention in particular to the ubiquitous amount of seaweed that washed up on the shore and decorated the beach like fallen leaves at a park in the fall. These translucent algae were illuminating while the sun was gently caressing the ocean surface with its magic hour touch.
