Sunset At Redondo Beach.

The ocean was a dark blue. The rounded hills, which rose abruptly from the gray cliffs, were a lavender with a darker shade in the valleys. A faint pink flush spread over the sky, growing into a rich gold with dashes of red, as it neared the western horizon. Thin, white mist rose from the white surf and drifted into the hollows, hiding and softening abrupt hill and cliffs. The sky back of the hills became darker blue and two stars gradually came out. The colors slowly faded and left the dark blue sky with a pink flush along the horizon.

Muriel Tucker, '11.
