We take a walk along Santa Monica Pier, home of carosels and the worlds first solar powered Ferris wheel. We then take to the pedestrianised Third Street Promenade for some window shopping. Here there is much street entertainment and lots of people.
A trip to LA would not be complete without visiting the famous Santa Monica and Muscle Beach. Its a hive of activity... surfers, rollerbladers, body builders, park chess players and lots more.... On one secton of the beach, hundreds of small white crosses have been erected, some named, others not. It is in honour of those killed and injured in Iraq. Its a very chilling exhibition in an area of such fun and enjoyment.
