Hello from the West coast of America! We are lucky enough to have family in Los Angeles so we’ve been enjoying sunny SoCal (Southern California) with them for about the past week. My sister just moved into a new place in Playa Vista, which is modern and new, and comes with its own nearby dog park!
The dogs, all 4 that were with us that day, had a blast. We enjoyed a big lunch of hearty pizza and healthy salads at 800 Degrees earlier that day. Then we got fro-yo at N’ice Cream, which has the best Italian tart frozen yogurt.
We spent the next morning at the Santa Monica beach, which was gorgeous, with perfect temperatures and sunny skies.
We met my Dad for lunch at Barney’s Beanery on the 3rd Street Promenade. All majorly fun places within walking distance of the beach.
The next day we went to Venice Beach and ate at Greenleaf. We walked around, shopped, and ate some ice cream (vegan, for some of us) from the Van Leeuwin ice cream truck. Then, we celebrated the 4th of July that evening with my sister, her husband, and their gorgeous new baby in Marina del Rey. The fireworks were small but enjoyable and the food we picked up from Mendocino Farms was delicious!
We spent another morning at the Santa Monica beach and had another delicious pizza with my Dad at 800 Degrees on the Promenade.
We got some deliciously refreshing smoothies at SunLife Organics.
Then we went back to Venice Beach to take a closer look at the ocean.
