No trip to Los Angeles would be complete without a visit to the beach, so during our 12 hour trip we made sure to visit the nearest one to us, Manhattan Beach Pier in Manhattan Beach, California. Since we didn’t have luggage we just got a ride over in the afternoon. I was honestly looking forward to a little warm weather, but the beach was very cold and windy. Despite the freezing temperatures, beach-goers were still out on the sand with some even daring to swim. Maybe I’m a little spoiled since we live closer to the beach, but it would have had to be a lot warmer in order for me to get near the water, haha.
We walked out to the end of the pier and back, then tried to make the most of our time by visiting the shops in Manhattan Beach. I visited a few of my known favorites, and a few new-to-me places. I have to admit my perfect vision of Southern California being covered in sunshine and palm trees was tainted during this trip, so I guess we’ll just have to give it a do-over later, ha!

Great pictures! A quick trip to the beach is always my idea of a good time! I’m like you though, the water would have to be pretty warm before I would consider getting in!!
