Santa Monica Pier Then and Now

As mentioned in our last post we took a break from the daily grind and headed out to Los Angeles. We spent a couple of nights in Santa Monica and stayed by the beach. Hubby and I took a walk one morning down to the Santa Monica Pier.

I was enamoured with the beach, as usual. I took some photo's and when I came home and uploaded them I was amazed at the similarity of these two.


and then.

Not sure what that large structure is in the background but isn't it funny how similar the view is on these?

I apologise for the bad quality of these pictures. They were on display on the pier, underneath a Plexiglas display and in full sun so I'm sure the combination of those two elements has something to do with the quality but I just had to share them.

These two dudes and their dog, just where are they though? On a boat mast?

This is Muscle Beach, I really love this shot, check out Tarzan!

Looks like some sort of training regimen going on here. There was a yoga class on the pier while we were there, but I don't think that's the case here.

Long boards! Duke would have been proud!

What fun photos. My mom loves carousel horses, so for her 40th birthday my dad rented out the entire carousel and we had a huge party! It was really fun.

Thanks doll,
