Early Morning At The Beach

How to best describe the atmosphere of Santa Monica beach in the early morning? Try Michael Connelly in The Scarecrow: "The sun had not burned off he marine layer yet and the sky was overcast. The Ferris wheel on the pier was shrouded in the mist [...] I watched a group of surfers coming in from their morning sets. They went to their cars and trucks, stripped off their wet suits and showered with gallon jugs of water, then wrapped towels around their bodies, pulled off their board shorts and changed into dry clothes underneath. It was the time-honored way of the pre-work surfer. One of them had a bumper sticker on his Subaru that made me smile. 'Can't we all get a longboard?'"
