    Sahara dust, as I understand it, it the reason that the sun sometimes disappears before hitting the horizon at sunset, even on cloudless days.

    Liza you'll still be able to enjoy the beach. Winds are a little calmer this morning. Yesterday I was able to get in for a swim. We've spent most of our days under a palapa.
