Scenic Sunday - Santa Monica Beach

I thought these would be a great entry for Scenic Sunday. I took these last summer at the Santa Monica Pier here in Southern California. To me there is nothing more peaceful that standing on the beach listening to the waves and feeling the sea breeze in your face. I couldn't post just one photo. Thought I'd give you different scenic views from the pier.

I did this when I was young in one of the hometown we lived. I love your description here.

Your pictures just remind me of my younger days. So using my imagination, I'm turning the clock back to reminisce those wonderful innocent days.

I thought you might like to see this:

It does look like a good place to listen to the sea - and the beach isn't too crowded either. I love the fairground shot though - reminds me of my childhood :)

I love your post. I can feel the warm Pacific waters on my toes right now, while we are currently freezing at below 60F, breezy and cool here in the northern part.

The beach looks enormously long. I love the sea but sometimes I find it overwhelming if the beach seems to go on and on for ever.
I'd imagine I might escape to the fairground for a ride or two really close to the water :)

Beautiful and looks like a fun place too! :-)

Oh yes, I'm glad you didn't post just one shot, either! I would have been wanting to see more. I'd love to stand there & listen to the waves myself & walk on that pier - Plus, I'd like to see what's inside that building at the end of the pier.
Happy Scenic Sunday!

I love the beach too and miss being able to visit. The next best thing is looking at great pictures of the beach.

Beautiful shots... and I agree with you ... there is nothing more peaceful than standing on a sandy shore and watching and listening to the sounds of the ocean.

It's primeval and so soothing..
