Remember how I was fascinated with the store in Santa Monica that had the windows full of old sewing machines? here :-)
It was a lovely warm day and we walked down to the famous Santa Monica Pier. What a beach! It was so wide; and how busy was the funfair on the pier?
|I was captivated by this old carousel/merry go round|
We visited the Information Kiosk as that was where an elderly cousin of DH's mother, Thelma, had worked as a volunteer for many years.

Sadly she died a matter of weeks before we arrived; she was 97! It was lovely to see that there is now an award in her name for outstanding employees in the tourism industry of Santa Monica.
So where has this past year gone? It doesn't feel like it all happened 12 months ago! lol
