Last weekend we were able to explore some of the most famous beaches of the South Bay coastline: Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach. It was a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of Venice and Santa Monica (check out some photos here). We planned this little trip at the last minute so we just went there and played it by ear. We walked around to see what these cities had to offer, and they didn’t disappoint!
We found a parking spot in Manhattan Beach downtown, right next to lots of cute little boutiques, lovely coffee shops and delicious restaurants. I instantly fell in love. The view of the pier was spectacular from there, the streets were very clean and calm, and the beach houses that are built in the hills were just breathtaking. Perfect beach vibes.
We walked all the way to the end of the pier and spent a decent amount of time staring at the surfers riding the waves. It’s an amazing sensation having the views of the Pacific Ocean right in front of you, I could have stayed there for hours.
Even in the middle of October it still feels like summer here – and I’m totally okay with that. Living in a place with an endless summer seems so perfect for me (I guess because I don’t plan to live here forever), though Dan hates the concept of “just one season”. Poor guy, he just wants to put his coat on and make snow angels. I doubt that’s gonna happen…
