It Never Rains in Southern California

I almost never made it out of heathrow to join my family on our Christmas holiday because of this

and when I finally made it out to California it was raining

monsoon type rain

for days

When the sun dared to show its face again it did so with a spectacular entrance

I didn't manage to do this beautiful rainbow justice on account of only having my iphone with me, but still, you get the general gist

The sun pretty much stuck around for the rest of the trip which was good because it meant that we got to go to the beach

It could be Brighton but it's Santa Monica, promise

That's better

I saw a snowman hoping for some snow

and a dog that looked a bit silly

I went to a secret guest only Foo Fighters gig, no photos allowed, so you'll just have to take my word for it 

I went for a nice walk around a silver lake

A sunset to end this holiday post 

Our soundtrack of the trip was 

this song at the beginning

this song to go crazy to

this song to set the scene

and this one because we all loved it

Thank you B B and B

Happy New Year



  1. Those photos are BEAUTIFUL!! Especially the monsoon shot--my goodness! The beach shots made me feel warm, which was a very nice change. Looks like you had a nice trip, with about every type of weather. Happy New Year!

  2. Thank you Holly! The warm beach now seems a distant memory. It was sooo cold in the shop today that my nose felt like an iceberg (I hate that) Happy New Year : )

  3. That rainbow is an absolute stunner. Love the bright colours of the Santa Monica fair, too. Happy New Year!
