Anti-Santa Anas

As the Santa Ana winds batter our windows and beat up the palm trees, I thought I would remind myself of the wonderful weather we had during our Malibu beach house vacation over Christmas. Bob and I are firm believers in "SNC" or the "Sunday Night Curse." The Santa Anas seem to have an inordinate propensity for showing up on Sunday night, which is trash night here. This means that in addition to the usual palm fronds and leaves, the wind can also deposit everyone's garbage on our lawn.

So, as a mental antidote, I'm posting a few more pictures of our peaceful time at the beach:
