Beach Days and Memorial Day

Have I mentioned that I love living in L.A. yet? Well, I do! One reason is because I am so close to the beach. I don't go nearly as often as I should or as often as I want to, but when I actually do get a chance to go I really LOVE it. These first few pics are from a couple of weeks ago and it was the first time I was able to really make it out this Spring.

If you look close, you can see the Santa Monica Pier in the background.

Another great trip to the beach took place yesterday on Memorial Day. Rachel and I decided to go to the beach and take advantage of the Awesome weather that we had. She had the great idea to ride our bikes to Santa Monica and I am so glad that we did because once we got there we discovered that parking cost $25!!CRAZY!! It was a great ride over (about 12.5 miles round-trip) down Venice Blvd, past Venice Beach and down the boardwalk to Santa Monica.

Patriot kites. They were HUGE, even though they looked really small in the picture.Unfortunately I got a flat tire on the way back. Luckily int was only about 2 blocks from my apartment. :(
