After a few days situated in Hollywood it was a nice change of pace to leave the hustle and bustle of the city and head to the coastline for some fresh air.
When in California a visit to Santa Monica is a must for a fun filled trip to the beach. After all not every coastline can boast a theme park situated right on the beach pier. I strolled the iconic area - breathing in the salty ocean air, enjoying the Californian sun and staring out to the Ferris Wheel where Marissa and Ryan had their first kiss in The OC (I loved that show). It truly is a beautiful spot to wind down and relax because the vibe is so laid back in Santa Monica. Here are a few snapshots from my afternoon visit to this beautiful beach spot.
