sun. set. repeat.

I dunno what it is about the ocean that mesmerizes me. I'm obviously not alone or people everywhere wouldn't build next to it or travel to it for a vacation... Nonetheless, I never get tired of seeing this. Its interesting - I notice people in my neighborhood who step out into the street or onto their porch every day to watch the sun set. There are times when Manhattan Beach can feel just a little too suburban, a little too white, a little too impressed with its money and all those Orange County-ish values (it is not in Orange County, for the record). Seeing people engage in rituals like stopping for the sunset make me feel a little better that the town hasn't lost all of its beach town charm. And I'm happy to join them.
