i love the santa monica beach
it has the beach + shopping area
life doesnt get any better
what more can i ask for? haha
it might not be the perfect paradise beach like those ones at Hawaii or Fiji but its a nice affordable(?) getaway beach. it's 15mins away from downtown LA so when one needs the beach breeze just go on the 10fwy and drive down with some good music on and you'll be at Santa Monica.
the beach is always nice to go to. especially when they have good shops like the third street promenade. theres fashion, food, and even design book shops. what seriously more can i ask for?
(oh and yes that's me in the picture :D)
