We spent a few days on our trip at Manhattan Beach and boy oh boy did we have some fun. We made sure to stop by Noah’s bagels (a must at Manhattan beach!), checked out all the expensive beach shops, walked the boardwalk, dunked ourselves in that freezing California water, people watched, and polished off 3/4 a (family size!) bag of Doritos in five minutes flat (ok, ok, that was mostly me). Despite the overcast weather, we got some intense sunburns and still have peeling backs, legs, and eyelids to prove it! Our plan “move-to-California-and-live-by-the-beach” is currently in the works. One day, one day.
