California Dreaming

So I'm better than yesterday, day is grey outside so here I am inside trying to do indoor stuff until the sun comes out...or it snows but I'm hoping sun.

Since my big (real) camera quit me at Christmas I was stuck with my underwater camera and my phone for vacation.  I was pretty stressed but for this vacation it was not bad.  I never used the underwater one cause I only went swimming in the pool by myself and I am not taking underwater pics of my self.  And since I always had my phone with me I could take pics whenever I wanted.

(Little League Parade, Love the name of this team )

(the pier)

(hockey game against the Penguins.  I didn't say anything there but boy can 
Sidney Crosby handle a puck well, was kinda cool to see him.  This 
confused me cause Kings were in Vintage uniforms of yellow and purple)

The shark from us standing on the pier)

(Everyone loves the Kings there, even the bakery made cookies with their logo on)

(Watching the ocean)

(toes in the sand :) )

(And wrote in sand I'm not very good at that)

(hard to tell but in the very middle is a hummingbird)

(Maybe easier to see in the video)

(The hill from the beach to our hotel)

(and looking down hill)

(Where we stayed)

(Me and Chris having breakfast)

(and another outdoor meal, we ate every meal outside there was super fun)

Had a great time, would definitely go back.  Was told that its quite expensive to live there (and we looked at some rel estate and I believe I will never be able to afford it)  But there is a lot of professional sports players in that area.  And supposedly Manhattan Beach is an older crowd, the beach is closed at 11 and there is no alcohol on it.  But we went down to Rodondo Beach (a little ways south) and its a lot younger crowd, totally different.  We were gonna go up to Marina Del Ray but we ran out of time, I think that woulda been cool just cause of the George Strait Song.  

I didn't notice much smog there, that was nice but we hardly went into the "city" part.  We did go to Target one day and another day to the game but that's about it.
