|Series||Walking the Santa Monica Pier|
Jennifer loves roller skating the Boardwalk from the Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach. Sometimes I walk and she skates or we ride our bicycles. Sometimes we go on the roller coaster or up on the ferris wheel. Sometimes we're happy just watching the eccentric personalities and enjoying the noisy spectacle, or poking into colorful shops and eating local grinds.
Skating on the Boardwalk
Colorful Buildings of Pacific Park
Most of the time we're having too much fun or we forget to bring the camera. This daily venture event wouldn't be recorded here if she hadn't reminded me.
Windsong on the Pier
This was a Sunday, so the pier, beach and boardwalk were packed with humanity of all types swarming around on foot or wheel, exercising and recreating. We quickly became part of this vibrant chaos, venturing forth with our dog marching resiliently nearby, much like our trek through the crowds of Manhattan.

On another occasion we rotated upwards in the ferris wheel, enjoying the sun, the intimate gondola, and its elevated viewpoint.
