California | Santa Monica Pier

The day following Disneyland we decided to go chill at the beach at Santa Monica Pier.

It's a double-wide pier that dons fabulous food and rides on the beach front.

While it was a tad cold to play too much in the water, we soaked in some sun on the beach.

I had my Runner's World in tow - an absolute must for an beach day.

As well as some boring scholarly books that no one really cares that much about. :)

While reading on the beach, a man came by selling fresh fruit. 

 So. fantastic. 

Jillian and Claire did brave the cold waters. I couldn't be bothered.

I just frolicked on the shoreline. 

Truth be told, I am not much of a beach person. If it is warm enough to get in the water, I am just fine. But being on the beach for a prolonged period of time {read as longer than two hours} just about does me in.

Maybe it would be a different story if I could tan ... opposed to fry like a lobster? I guess the world will never know.

After we left the beach we went to the Third Street Promenade, just several blocks away.

It was such a fun environment. There were people all around and street performers everywhere. There were places to shop {H&M!!!}, place to eat and places to get gelato! 

P.S. That is all for this day. However, as I type this there are two flies flying around in my living room. Bzzzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! It's enough to make you go batty! I think it is time for some little bug to die ...

I think it is funny that girls in Utah are obsessed with H&m, where I have 4 on every corner here (probably) haha.

I'm going to have to remember this post when we head to California next month.
