While I was in the Los Angeles area for the BCS National Championship, I was able to go and see a dear friend of mine who lives in Manhattan Beach. This was the first time I had ever seen the Pacific Ocean and it was much more beautiful than I had expected! Everyone around here always exclaims that "the Pacific has nothing on the Gulf", which I can see where someone saying that would be coming from, however, the Gulf certainly does not have stunning mountain views all around it.
I wish we would have had more time to explore this adorable little town, next time!
Something about salt in the air makes the soul feel better. As much as I love everything about the south, I could definitely get used to this place. I am not sure there's a place in the US that has better weather, at least not one I have visited!
Definitely on the list of places I would go back to and explore more. Still getting used to this whole taking photos thing, but I will say it seems that taking them outdoors is so much easier than taking them in the kitchen! ALWAYS welcoming any and all photography suggestions for beginners!
Until next time, safe travels!
