My cousin, Dalia, riding the carousel at the Santa Monica Pier. Wearing one of our grandmother’s old dresses.
My grandfather shared the story about how when he and my grandma would travel, if they ever found themselves in a town with a carousel, they would make it a point to ride it. I love that.
While I’ve lived in Los Angeles for three years, today was only my second time riding the ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier. The rain clouds cleared after last night’s storm, and left a gorgeous crisp blue sky and sunny weather for us to enjoy. The view of the beach from the top was just priceless. #lovethiscity
