San Clemente coast overcast

In spite of it being a wonderful day for the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl football game in Pasadena, the California coast had fog and slight overcast. Several hundred yards inland it was brighter. I set up at the foot of the park and beach access where the trains run past, right near the city pier. A dozen people dropped by for a look a plain orange sun through a glass solar filter on my 114mm reflector. After a couple hours it was very hard to see the sun with the filter, but the sun was shining a bit through the clouds. The overcast got worse. After a short break I went up to the City Hall parking lot for a while. that was fairly sunny but deserted up there. I enclose pictures from the early day.
