Santa Monica Pier
At the end or perhaps the beginning of Route 66 we stand like Forrest Gump before us at the Santa Monica Pier or perhaps even more impressive the mighty North Pacific Ocean. This is as far as we can drive across the American continent, a favourite fishing and entertainment area to the California population and tourist mecca.
With the sun shinning brightly down from its vivid blue sky as it so often does in this sunshine state of movie stars and bronzed life guards we can walk out on the pier to enjoy the view, dine or play at the fair ground. Perhaps wander down to the beach below to see the famous Baywatch towers or simply walk upon the warm yellow sands.
