Santa Monica Beacch

Santa Monica beach and pier as seen from the ferris wheel.

The ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier wasn’t the best idea as a solo traveler since you can’t ride alone. Luckily, a couple let me ride in the 4-person gondola with them. I loved the higher up view of the stretch of beach and the ocean. It was fairly busy for a Monday in early May.

    Hi Melissa – I saw you on TBEX and read your About Me section… love it. I think we have very similar travel styles! Anyway, this is a great pic of the Santa Monica Pier. I live in SoCal but haven’t ever considered riding the ferris wheel… but may rethink that after seeing the gorge view from up there! :)
