As this post is hitting the internet, I am in Phoenix watching my beloved Maple Leafs beat the Phoenix Coyotes… I hope!
Judy agreed to post it for me in my absence, thanks to having my Windows Live Writer back in operation!
On Monday, when we were in L. A. we took in the Hollywood Sign, and then headed down to the Pacific Ocean to check out the Santa Monica Pier!
The Pier was built in 1908… made of wood and is still in great shape.
It was a beautiful day, but all the tourist you see in the pictures have winter coats on… go figure.
You can play chess or checkers at the end of the pier.
They keep the beach in great shape.
This guy was getting a clay figurine made of his head, there were about 3 or 4 people doing this on the pier… they were very good.
Just a great beach, and it goes for miles!
Pacific Park is an amusement park right on the pier.
The pier is huge, and you can see, it has wood piers.
Now this is cool, you can actually drive out on the pier for a small piece, and it is the end of the famous Route 66. Some may know, Route 66 Runs from Chicago to Los Angeles, ending on the pier at the Pacific Ocean! You can still ride the Route 66.
At least you can tell when you hit the end of the Route 66…
Judy was brave enough to head out and get her feet wet, we did see one young lady swimming, but the Ocean was a bit cool!
After the pier we were off to the Leaf Game. Sure was nice of my Leaf’s to make a nice western swing in their schedule while we are down in this area!
I should be back home for tomorrow night blog…
