My wife and I took a walk on the beach the morning after Labor Day. The beach was desolate. Perfectly clear, beautiful, and empty, we walked with our 5 pound Yorkie. It was our first walk along the oceans edge as a couple. It’s funny how very little time we spend at water, living only a block away from this gorgeous sight. We’re close enough to hear the waves at night and smell the ocean.

“Santa Monica has had several piers over the years; however, the current Santa Monica Pier is actually two adjoining piers that long had separate owners. The long, narrow Municipal Pier opened September 9, 1909,3 primarily to carry sewer pipes beyond the breakers,4 and had no amenities. The short, wide adjoining Pleasure Pier to the south, a.k.a. Newcomb Pier, was built in 1916 by Charles I. D. Looff and his son Arthur, amusement park pioneers.5 Attractions on the Pleasure Pier eventually included the Santa Monica Looff Hippodrome building (which now houses the current carousel and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places), the Blue Streak Racer wooden roller coaster (which was purchased from the defunct Wonderland amusement park in San Diego), the Whip, merry-go-rounds, Wurlitzer organs, and a funhouse.”
