on monday, we woke up to a gloomy day in oxnard so we decided to hop in the car and head south on the PCH (pacific coast highway) to show vicky and joe around santa monica and venice. it was the perfect day trip. we started in santa monica, trolling the lovely neighborhood streets off montana avenue before parking and taking a walk down third street promenade, then walking down ocean avenue and straight to the santa monica pier. venice was our next stop – abbot kinney, the canals and of course muscle beach.
we ended the day with cocktails and dinner at shutters on the beach in santa monica. such a perfect place. ahhh, CA.
