We walked to the beach. The beach there is very nice but you have to walk a long way in the sand to get to the water. The boys dipped their feet in the water. I didn't want to get my feet all sandy. Then we walked down the boardwalk to Santa Monica pier. It was early evening so the lights were on the rides. It was cool seeing the Ferris wheel with the changing lights. We walked about 3 miles there and back. We were really tired after walking back.
