Beaching

Thanks to a sunny Saturday with nothing to do, Aaron and I decided to randomly select a city for a day trip. We chose Hermosa Beach. Aaron put our bikes on the back of the Jeep and I packed lunch, snacks, sunscreen, towels and lots of water.
I LOVED this beach town! You can ride your bike on the boardwalk for miles. After doing that for awhile, we spread our towels and got some sun (well, as much sun as can get through my 45 spf sunscreen). I played in the ocean for a bit. Then we rode our bikes again and did some shopping. I bought a vintage letterpress "M" from an antique shop.

We wrapped up the day with dinner at El Gringo. I loved the restaurant's name and their delicious food. We ate sooooooo much! The portions were gigantic. We dined alfresco at sunset - how perfect!

You can actually go in the water in April? And the food looked really good!

Ahh Hermosa Beach! One of my first memories is walking along the bike path with my family and really really needing to pee, but two bathrooms in a row were locked... I think I was 5. Sounds like you has a fabulous evening!
