One regret from this trip is we did not allow for enough beach time and the day we did allow for it, we messed up by not checking the weather and it was COLD.
One afternoon we drove out to Venice to walk along the beach but didn't bring our suits or towels or anything else. I always forget just how cold the ocean is. Surprises me every time.

The view north towards Santa Monica.
We tried to watch sunset on Santa Monica pier and grab dinner there. Due to a concert or something going on, the parking was crazy expensive. Darren was nice enough to pull off on the side of the road for me to hop out and grab a few pictures of sunset.
