Los Angeles CA (1) – Santa Monica Pier

Our three days in LA was short and trying to squeeze in as many things as we could proved daunting.  Relying on the local transit system, we realized LA is a car-required city.  After one error when we got off the bus too early, we finally made it to the Santa Monica Pier.
