#californiadreaming. santa monica pier

like i mentioned briefly in the previous post, not only did we stay close to good friends, but we also stayed close to the santa monica pier

a place where you find people of all ages

on this particular day, Lily and i walked all the way down to the promenade where Will met us after he was done with his work, we had lunch overlooking the pier, the ocean and the cliffs and then we hit the rides

we did all the rides, even the roller coaster (yes, me too), ate ice cream, funnel cake, took in the beautiful views…

it was a wonderful afternoon on the santa monica pier that unfortunately ended quickly because Lily started complaining about a headache

 we got her some advil and rushed home because we knew a migraine would soon be coming

i think the long day she had and the jet lag had finally caught up to her

she woke up the following day feeling all good again
