CALI: SANTA MONICA PIER + PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY
CHECKS I MADE OFF MY BUCKET LIST:
VISIT SANTA MONICA PIER + SMOKE ON THE BEACH
As you already know I have an unhealthy love for California infact, I want to move there. The reason I fell in love was with the Santa Monica Pier. It started when I came in December 2017, and saw it at night for the first time. I was super excited the ferris wheel was all lighted up and it was a beautiful sight!
However. night-time anywhere in the world = cold as f*ck for me! So I put on a sweater and walked the beach instead with my love! However, we went back to the Santa Monica Pier the next day and a lady was walking on the beach selling mangos so I got mangos with some tajin + sauce (because I’m from New York where that is a thing to do for fruits especially when it’s being sold outside + it’s extra yummy this way) and it was amazing! We did go to a dispensary before going to the beach so we can buy more marijuana and we did smoke weed on the beach because we saw other people doing it and well we were tourists so why not! The sun was beautiful, the air was beautiful it was just a fun time to be there! While we did not go on the ferris wheel (much to my disappointment I must do this next time I go back to California) we did eat a Bubba Gump which we had never tried before and I took home a cup that still lights up which I now use to put my coins in! However, i definitely recommend trying out Bubba Gump if you have not + the server was really friendly and patient with us as it was our first time there and we had no idea what to get! However, our food was absolutely delicious + it was completely worth all the money spent (I believe we spent $50-$60)!
