I spent the second half of my day at Santa Monica Beach. Breathtaking view of the cotton candy clouds while watching the sunset. I wish I spent more time on the beach and pier - such a stunning view! I was hoping to go to Venice Beach after Santa Monica but didn't have to go to both. My uber driver said that Manhattan Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in California, so I'm hoping to go next time I'm in Cali. The drive back to the hotel took over an hour but our uber driver's Beyonce playlist got me bumping the entire ride back. Have you watched the sunset at Santa Monica?
