Denied

I was riding my bike through Redondo Beach in King Harbor. That's an area right on the ocean and it is saltwater everywhere. You won't see rust and decay anywhere like a port area unless you start flinging around acid. Anyway, I took a photo of a sign that had corroded in a funny way. Added a little to it to make a meme.
