I’m back after a good night’s rest :)
Yesterday my cousin, Willow, and I headed to the beach for the day!
Isn’t she pretty? :)
We brought bikes with us because there’s a path that goes all along the beach for miles and miles. I loveeeee biking outside on a pretty day.
We spent the day tooling around on the bikes, playing on the beach, and walking around taking in all the action (and taking pictures, of course!).
We started in Santa Monica and ended up biking down to Venice Beach, which is where my new favorite photo that I posted last night was taken.
It seriously could not have been more amazing weather. I’m a little unsure why everyone doesn’t move to California (myself included).
Mountains plus beach = amazing.
Venice Beach was also really cool because there was so much entertainment everywhere you looked. A huge highlight of the day was stopping to watch a group of these AMAZING skateboarders in action.
There was a huge crowd hanging out, and the main attraction was this little 10 year old boy (above in the black shirt) who was freaking AWESOME. I’m serious, we’ll definitely be seeing this kid at the X Games in like two years.
I even took a video so you guys could see this, too :)
Other entertainment included these fun swings:
And this cool grassy area where people were practicing yoga, break dancing, showing off amazing dancing lifts, etc. It was so fun to watch!
Creativity was in the air… I felt inspired :)
Willow and I ended back at the Santa Monica pier just in time for the sunset!
Clearly we took a ride on the Ferris wheel :)
It was a gorgeous sunset!
It’s looking like another beautiful day here in Los Angeles! Willow and I are going to take a quick run and then the two of us are heading to Hollywood for the day with my cousin Derek for some serious sightseeing!
Have a lovely day, friends! :)
p.s. In food news, I put up the recipe for the amazing Lemon Garlic String Beans that I made for dinner at Jenna’s friend Hardy’s place the other night. A few of you were asking for it so just a heads up!
