I planned to leave work a bit early today so I could get a photo of my polling place at sunset, because it was the lifeguard headquarters at Venice Beach. Seriously. I’d never been inside the building before, but even though I half expected it to contain Baywatch type props, it just looked like a giant suburban garage, right down to the washer/dryer in one corner.
Unfortunately, I ended up working on a report past sunset (curse you, daylight savings!). But it’s a very nice night to go down to the beach anyways. It’s gorgeous and warm out, even down here, and it smells like summer still. Best polling place ever.
