The Beach...ahh need I say more. Mike and I both love the ocean oh so much. We can't ever get enough of the bright blue ocean,  the waves, the warm sun and sandy toes. The beach is what I miss most and Santa Monica was like no other beach I had ever been too. Beach was never ending with golden sand, an amazing walking/bike path and pier. 

Because of the time change, we instantly became early risers, we arrived at Santa Monica around 8 am and had breakfast at the Beach Cafe. Best breakfast I have ever had on the beach! We laid out for quiet a while, Mike was brave enough to get in the water it was way too cold for me. By noon the crowd started rolling in so we decided to walk the beach and head over to the pier.
