This weekend, we headed to Santa Monica to visit Kelly (and Winston!) who live there. Kelly, me and Dave:
And Winston of course.
It was cloudy for most of Saturday, which is not the norm around here. I always get irrationally annoyed if the clouds are getting in the way of my sunsets. But we still had a pretty great view from the rooftop bar we visited.
It was a pretty fancy place, so naturally we ordered fancy drinks. This was some kind of fruity mojito:
It looks big … looks can be deceiving. It took me about 4 minutes to drink it. 🙂 And because we can’t do anything too fancy for too long, we also ordered a big bowl of french fries.
Me and Dave, before we decided to vacate the premises and head somewhere more our speed (read: a bar with awesome cheeseburgers with cheese stuffed in the middle).
On our way, we stopped to watch as a crowd gathered around a few street performers. (Maybe I need a new career—she made street dancing look pretty appealing.)
It was a fun night! We didn’t make it to the Santa Monica pier, which is famous for its small carnival right on the pier, but I did walk down the beach on Sunday morning so I could see it.
(Still cloudy. Southern California, you are not allowed to be cloudy!)
On my stroll along the beach, I passed this trailer. This guy has the right idea. He was obviously out living the life when I snapped this photo.
Pretty nice set-up.
I kind of want to live on Kapowui Island too!
When I made it to the pier, I was surprised to see a full-on carnival—not only the ferris wheel, but a swinging pirate ship, bumper boats, and even a Scrambler. Remember those?! I’m pretty sure someone would have to pay me at least $1000 to get on one today. But if anyone is offering, I could probably be brave and attempt it. 🙂
They were even selling all kinds of merchandise along the pier. I almost bought a cowboy hat. 🙂 I ran out of time though. Next time!
Until we revisit Santa Monica, Winston says goodbye for now. ❤
Have a great week!
