Fog / Smog, Manhattan Beach
Along the beach looking north, past the pier, past the palm trees, past the lovely homes, an ominous sign of Los Angeles civilization looms.
An advantage Manhattan Beach has, is that the wind usually blows from west to east and the smoke from these stacks probably rarely ruin a day spent at this beach. However, if you are sensitive to pollutants in the air, you might beware of the wind's direction before staying out too long.
The Californian law prohibits smoking in restaurants, so a great meeting point for all smokers is outside ...
you get to know more people smoking outside than in a pub hehehehe
