Nothing like free parking at the beach to start your Saturday off right!
We went to Manhattan Beach on Saturday morning to get our pictures taken, and had some fun afterwards too. We didn't know before we went, but there is a cool little free aquarium at the end of the pier. Violet loved touching the starfish and making fish faces at the fish in the tank.
It took us about twenty minutes to walk back down the pier because Violet was so obsessed with looking over the edge:
On our way back to the car, we decided to stop at Wahoo's for fish tacos, which was a delicious treat. The best thing was that it never rained! We were worried about taking pictures on Saturday because it rained for two days before, and it rained Saturday afternoon, but the couple hours of dry skies overlapped with our trip to the beach. Lucky us!
