Monday, David and I came home from a quick trip to Cali. We left on Thursday to visit his family and see his big sister get married. It was my first trip to the west coast and I'd never even been on a plane that long before (more on that later). We weren't able to do much sight-seeing things since we were there for a wedding, but it was great just being in the sunshine. One day, we visited Venice Beach. Let me tell you, it was not my jam. The beach itself was gorgeous, but everything else -- the outside gym, the "Green Doctors," and the crappy food were not really things that I enjoy. Nonetheless, it was interesting!
Another day, we headed to Santa Monica pier with David's brother to watch the sun set and walk about. Guys, I'm a huge Forrest Gump fan so I was thrilled to see the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. I picked up a pack of trivia cards and a postcard there (my only two souveniers from the entire trip) and we walked along the pier and munch on some fresh churros. mmm!
I didn't take many photos as we were either busy doing wedding things or I was working on homework (I know, the worst!). I love this last one though! It was a hotel off of the Santa Monica pier that reminded me of something that belonged in a Wes Anderson movie. We have plans to go back to California soon-ish. What are some places that you love in LA?
