Touristy

March 4, 2012

My family from London is still here so yesterday we went to Venice beach, the Santa Monica pier, and Third Street Promenade. It’s been years since I’ve visited any of these places so it was fun seeing how things have changed.

I’m a little bummed I didn’t take as many photos as I wanted to but sometimes I feel like a jerk when I bust out my DSLR. I know it’s something I have to get over. It’s not like I’ll see any of these people again. ¬†An iPhone would make it so much easier though.

Can’t wait ’til I get my legs tattooed. The lone calf piece looks so static.

MR. QUIGGLY! Lily could totally be Mrs. Quiggly.

I DO!

Santa Monica

And at the very end of the Santa Monica pier a guy used a flash mob to propose to his girlfriend (far right with the sunflowers). It was so cute! She said yes and everyone screamed, hollered, and clapped for the happy couple.

We ended the night with burgers at The Golden State Cafe. I think I still prefer Umami Burger but both places are good and worth checking out if you’re in L.A. They have vegetarian options, too!

    I’ll bet there was some awesome people-watching there! I hear you on the camera conundrum. I always feel so conspicuous & sheepish & then kick myself later for not taking more shots.

      Indeed there was! Glad to know I’m not alone with the camera conundrum.
