Jimmy Cliff and the end of summer

An evening with reggae legend and Rock and Roll Hall of famer Jimmy Cliff -- not a bad way to close out the Santa Monica pier's Twilight Concert series. (Get ready for some grainy photos shot at ISO 3200.)

Lord it was crowded. Lots of people on the pier, even more on the beach. You didn't walk as much as surge along to find fight for a spot on the sand.

biggest crowd of summer

Look -- Jimmy!

He and the band played for more than an hour. (Hum "The Harder They Come" and you get the picture.)

A sea breeze stirred the flags--

...and the roller coaster glowed--

...and a really creepy red-and-green drone flew and hovered and filmed the crowd from overhead.
