Los Angeles: Day 3

So we have just settled into our apartment in the heart of downtown L.A.; two days of laundry is in the wash and T is behind me googling local grocery stores and farmer markets. On our first day in L.A., we binged on fast food and when I say binge I mean seriously, we stuffed our face with fast food and it's starting to show. McDonalds for breakfast, Taco Bell for lunch, In and Out for dinner - yeah, farmers market sounds good; fresh salads, veggies, no oil, healthy.

Our first two days was spent in Santa Monica. We stumbled across the Santa Monica Pier - which was not as modern as Playland, but definitely had that nostalgic-storybook-date-night-type of feeling, and Venice Beach. We would have loved to spend a whole day just hanging out at the beach, but unfortunately, Santa Monica was not as warm as we thought it would be. The weather was a lot like Vancouver weather - a bit grey and a bit cloudy and a bit windy. Having said that, we explored various parts of the city instead and then shopped along the Third Street Promenade and also at Santa Monica Place.
