California – Our First Day


LA March 2009 007 Santa Monica Pier


After a long day of endless home accessory shopping we decided to take some time off and enjoy a beautiful sunset in California. 


We heard that one of the best places to do this in California was Santa Monica Pier – A legendary landmark for many movies.  This memorable location has a variety of entertainment, dining and shopping experiences, including the thrill rides of Pacific Park; and a historic 1922 Carousel that we never saw. 


We were not disappointed, we got our beautiful sunset and we had lots of fun while I was able to take some pictures to share with you.

Super cool. I wish I was there to enjoy California with you both. The bright colours and golden sunset seems like dream - it's cloudy and rainy in Victoria.

Enjoy every minute of it.

Enjoy the great weather and the energy that radiates and fills your experience with great ideas!

I was born in Santa Monica CA (St. Johns Hospital) and grew up in Venice, CA. It has a vibe that you can't resist.

Have a fantastic time.



Thanks for the good wishes :)
