Santa Monica Blues
I had the most amazing time in Santa Monica. I loved that I was a ten minuet walk from Free People (I made quite a few visits). The shopping in Santa Monica is out of this world, it has every shop you can think of. Venice Beach is also good for shopping, there is some unique pieces and great t shirts.
I went on my own and met so many interesting people. I met a guy at the hotel pool who was a roadie with The Rolling Stones in the 1990's, he had so many cool stories and was off the following night to watch them at the Honda Center.
I dont have that many pictures of myself (the downside of travelling alone) that and having no one to apply suntan lotion to your back, as I found out on the first day I decided to hit the beach.
I hit Venice Beach pretty much everyday it was about a three mile walk from my hotel, the walk was literally following the coastline so a real beautiful walk. I couldnt resist getting a few tattoos done at House of Ink. I also meet up with some local surfers and had some surf lesson, I am pretty poor but practice makes perfect.
Now I am left with the holiday blues as always when I go to La, so I am planning my next trip there :)
