We went to California last weekend and had a wonderful time. Our last stop was Santa Monica Pier. We walked along 3rd Street Promenade but I was a little tired of shopping. We did visit the English stores to buy some Cadbury's chocolate and Fox's glacier mints. Yummy! I love English Chocolate. We also walked along the Santa Monica Pier. I just wish they had the $1 bumper cars. That would have been fun. Instead, we watched the fishermen catching fish, a lady writing names on grains of rice, and many people who were trying to earn fast cash. We did have a really nice time and hope to live in California someday. It will definitely be after we have lived in England for a few years but it is in our plans for the future.
