One of the pros of living in California is access to the beautiful beaches. Here is my current favorite--Santa Monica! This area is commercial, fun, and it's absolutely gorgeous.
|Here is a picture of the Santa Monica Pier. There are all sorts of fun things here including a little carnival area and restaurants to eat at. The arcade here is fun too if you want to indulge your inner child!|
|Walking towards the beach from the pier entrance affords you this stunning view.|
|Here you can see fellow beach-goers enjoying the ocean!|
|The setting summer sun is captivating.|
|The sunset colors are just gorgeous.|
Santa Monica is a place I love to take people when they visit for a day trip :) The beach and the 3rd Street Promenade along with the pier make for a beautiful and enjoyable day. If you visit Southern California, please stop by Santa Monica!
