In case you didn't see my previous post, The Man and I have been in the Los Angeles area since Friday and are having a marvelous time. I've been here before but didn't remember how beautiful the landscape is.
On Saturday, we struck out on our own and discovered all sorts of things, including the Santa Monica Pier and, yes, the Pacific Ocean! We have yet to stick our feet in it, but, Lord willing, we plan to do that before we leave.
We didn't actually go to the pier, but we could see it below, from a distance. But what we did do was spread a blanket out on the grassy area and join the others who were doing the same thing. We weren't "under the boardwalk," as the old song goes, but it was a pleasant afternoon in Santa Monica, on a blanket with my baby.
One of the many amazing trees.
That's the pier to the left. It extends out over the Pacific Ocean.
I put a quarter in the telescope and could almost tell who was riding the Ferris wheel.
Have you done something lately that seemed small, but meaningful all at the same time? Those are the kinds of things we celebrate at the Simple Pleasures party, and I'd love to see what you've been up to. If you're new here, the guidelines can be found under the Simple Pleasure tab.
