Santa Monica Beach Report

These are my favorite pictures from my afternoon at the Santa Monica Beach last Friday.  I felt like LA lived up to its reputation in the best way, with surfers, a huge lizard, high flying trapeze artists, roller skaters with steel guitars, and more.  Best of all, after listening to Under the Boardwalk endlessly play in my head all day, it was satisfying to pull up to a fish taco stand and hear it coming out of a real speaker, under the real boardwalk at Big Dean's Taco Stand.  California, I think I love you.
