.. and saw my first "Green Flash"! A Green Flash occurs right at sunset under perfect atmospheric conditions.. as the last sliver of the sun dips under the ocean.. the sun turns green and glows green around it. Very cool..

San Diego has got a gem of a park in Torrey Pines.. could come back here every day... and apparently some people do...

While the sun was setting.. some old reminiscent California guy talked my ear off for about an hour about all the things he'd used to do and see along this stretch of coast... he's been coming back to this beach almost every day for 25 years. He was very entertaining.

The 'green flash' does not appear unless you are looking at the sun before it goes below the horizon. It is your eye that captures the complementary green after staring at the orange.

Of course, since you can take pictures of the green flash, there is the likely possibility that I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL I'M TALKING ABOUT!
