Catching up a bit here…yesterday on the 28th, all our students headed out to Santa Monica to take in the pier and promenade shops and attractions, as well as to get a first look at the California Pacific coastline. It was a cool and grey day along the ocean, but the city in West Los Angeles was full of shops and restaurants to try. The Santa Monica Pier also kept kids entertained, with many riding the Ferris wheel and roller coasters over the ocean. For some of the kids (and some of our staff!) this was the first time they’d seen the Pacific Ocean! We had a great afternoon exploring past the boundaries of UCLA and getting to know Los Angeles a bit better.
We’ll be taking more visits to the beach later in the program. Up next…Malibu on Sunday!
