Again, no editing or making the photos all nice and neat. What you get is what you get. I could’ve spent a few more days at Malibu. I’m glad we weren’t visiting Santa Monica Pier because it’s always smelly and sort of gross. It’s overrated in many ways. However, this pier is a great place to visit as it has a relaxing energy and not as busy and crazy as Venice Beach. There’s something about driving on the PCH. Too bad I couldn’t dip my feet in because unlike the surfers, I heed the warnings not to go into the water.
