Play Day in Santa Monica!

Yesterday Shayla and I had a play day in Santa Monica! We went to Chipotle for lunch (*sigh* of contentment) and then walked around UCLA campus. We then drove down to the Promenade and Pier in Santa Monica. The Promenade reminded me of Pearl Street in Bolder; yes, there were crazy street performers and homeless people all over! After walking down the Promenade we got ice cream cones on the Pier - chocolate and vanilla swirl - and sat on the beach. We watched the sunset and then dug for sandcrabs! It was a very delightful and relaxing day. :)

Bubba Gump Shrimp! It reminded me of Forrest Gump! ;)

My baby sandcrab! Actually, he wasn't really a baby, he was huge! To find them you stand by the edge of the water and when the water goes out you look for little bubbles in the sand. Apparently they are air bubbles from the sandcrabs. Then you dig like crazy (because sandcrabs dig ridiculously fast!) and hope you find one.
