Spring Break Day 3: Santa Monica and Malibu

We went to Santa Monica today, because it was supposed to be our warmest weather. We got there around 1 to some weird, intense fog. I've never seen fog like that -- we couldn't see the ocean from the beach!

We walked down the beach to Muscle Beach, where exhibitionists practice strange forms of exercise. My brother did some flips on the rings:

His girlfriend (a gymnast) showed off her mad upper body strength. She climbed all the way up the rope without using her legs.

And that rope is really high up!

I can do neither of these activities. Way to make me feel out of shape.

We had a picnic of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that I made.

We explored the foggy beach...

But then the sun came out!

We drove up the PCH to Malibu for no reason, just because it's beautiful. It was in the seventies and we just blasted the radio with the windows down and enjoyed how beautiful California is. We took a random Canyon road that went up and up until we found a really cool view over the ocean.

Then we turned around, drove all the way back, and headed to the Grove for some window shopping. We also set the test iPads with embarrassing background photos of each other.

They got gyros and ice cream at the farmers market and I ran across the street to the Whole Foods (3rd and Fairfax) and got some food from the salad bar and took it back to eat with them. Worked for everyone.

Aren't they adorable?

Tomorrow I'm taking them with me to acting class and then we'll head to Hollywood and get touristy.
