A Short Vacation: Day One

Here are some photos and short videos of our walk in Santa Monica , California this morning – visiting family, going for walks, and resting up a bit. This morning we walked down to the Santa Monica Pier, the end or the beginning-depends on your perspective I guess- of the famous Route 66. (Last month we were on it in Flagstaff, Arizona while visiting the Grand Canyon.)

Right across the street where we are visiting.


Some old friends playing a game in Palisades Park.


Some plants and trees.


Southern California!


Cool house on the Pacific Highway (looking down from the bluffs).

And, yep still dieting… had Mongolian BBQ with mostly vegetables..it was yummy, but I was starving.


Finally on the walk back through the Promenade I saw these sandals in a Clark’s store window and it reminded me that I still want to learn to make sandals!


Checked my pedometer at the end and the whole walk was over 6 miles (10 km).
