Upon waking up on Sunday, we felt much more refreshed and ready to take on the day. Although we didn’t have a set agenda, we did want to make sure we checked out the beach. So with our travel-sized sun screens in tow, we made our way to the Santa Monica beach.

One difficult thing about Santa Monica (and California in general, so I have heard) is the lack of public transportation. I’m so used to taking subways everywhere in New York, but we ended up spending a lot on Ubers this trip. Matt tried the Bird and Lime scooters, which seemed to be the primary mode of transportation for most people our age in Santa Monica, but I was a little too chicken to follow suit.

In any case, we made it to the beach (thanks, Uber). Although it definitely wasn’t my favorite beach I’ve ever been to, it was cool to get to see the mountains in the distance and touch the Pacific Ocean for the first time. It seemed like a very touristy beach – although it didn’t get super crowded when we were there, when we returned later that night it was super packed.

We didn’t stay for too long, but we were able to get some nice photos before we left. Then, we were off to Malibu!
