Santa Monica Beach

The Old Santa Monica Pier!

Yesterday we had some of our Peeps in town
from Chicago so we all hit a Good old
tourist Spot. The Old Beach spots of
Santa Monica California.

What would a tourist destination be if
it lacked a Map of The Stars Homes!
and Crime Scenes....

This Old Brick Building is one of the oldest
in Downtown Santa Monica. Built in 1857
beautiful arched windows.

And this very cool and yes very vintage
Shuffle Board Park, overlooking the
famous Santa Monica Pier.

Had to snap a pix of this little
coin operated Bronco!
It sure reminded me of the ones we
had going up!

I am going to leave you with this View of
The Santa Monica Pier. And also a super sweet
and oh so talented Blog friend gave me
this wonderful Award and I am honored, because
this gal Sarah is just a creator of lovely things, My So
Her Etsy Store is one of my Favorites

And now I must pass it on to a few of my favorites, that sure is hard
I have so many I love dearly. So here are a few:

Do go Check these gals Out I just know you are going to love them all.
