January by the seaside, with spinach.

A day trip to the seaside at Santa Monica Pier, and not unlike the piers in England this one was very similar with the hats and the garish signs.I found this little piece about Popeye and his beginnings quite interesting.

The difference was that yesterday, when we went it was sunny and warm, a similar pier in the UK would be peopled by the odd well wrapped fisherman and the occasional out of season visitors trying to keep their faces from the icy blasts off the sea.

The trip back, along Sunset Boulevard took us two hours, it’s about 15 miles.


 

This is from my recent trip to Los Angeles earlier this month.
