3rd Street

Living in Southern California is pretty awesome, we have awesome weather and quick access to the ocean, mountains and desert. Unfortunately, living here comes with horrible traffic that you encounter at all times. As I mentioned in a previous post, my husband and I started to use public transportation and have been a little obsessed. Our Metro/subway system does not cover many cities but recently an expansion was revealed and you can now take the metro to the beach! My husband and I decided to make the trip on what we now call "Subway Sunday". 






On this particular Sunday, it was warm and sunny where we live so I was dressed for summer with shorts and a tank top.  When we reached Santa Monica it was gloomy and chilly, so we technical didn't make it all the way to beach. We stayed on 3rd Street which is known as  3rd Street Promenade. I've been here before but it's been a while since my last visit. I was surprised of the many changes I noticed or maybe I never noticed them. Does that ever happen to you? I noticed that now that I'm older I notice a lot more things that I never paid much attention to when I was younger. Things like plants, birds or architecture are things that I probably didn't notice or took for granted in my youth. 




Anyways, back to Subway Sunday...    
By the time we reached Santa Monica I was on the verge of being hangry! After walking around and looking for a place that served hot wings (my husband was craving wings) I was totally hangry! When we found a restaurant that served hot wings we were told the wait would be 50 minutes! We were too hungry to wait 50 more minutes so we settled for Johnny Rockets and ate burgers and fries. 

Couple on a date. 

Our waitress created these ketchup portraits of my husband and I. Isn't this the cutest?


After eating we decided to head home because it was far too cold to be walking in shorts and a tank top. 



One more of me because I can't get over how cute I look in Ketchup, just kidding that doesn't even look like me!

These photos were taken on my iphone. I wanted to take my DSLR camera but some of the areas you travel to connect to the different subways are a little sketchy and makes me feel a little unsafe so I avoid taking anything of value with me on Subway Sunday.
