Familiar with “Small Yellow Buses”, I am excited that things are becoming bigger and more colorful in my life.
The No.10 Santa Monica Express bus soon comes to an abrupt stop in front of me. Without exact change for the $1.75 fare I deposit $2.00 and inform the driver that I am giving her a 25 cents tip. This brings a smile and a new bus driver friendship.
I have my doubts that we will get to Santa Monica anytime soon. My doubts are soon removed as I witness some bus driving skills that I am sure not even Ralph Kramden could compete with.
“Y'all better watch out, I am driving a 40,000 pound bus” our bus driver warns those brave enough to enter her path. I love it!
Too much for even the bus to handle, a PA announcements request “Open your windows, my transmission is over heating”. With it's engine turned off we sit a few minutes on the side of the interstate to allow the bus to catch it's breath.
“Don't worry, y'all going to be OK on my bus”
Cool restaurants, movie theaters, street performers and shops makes this a great place to hangout.
So LA, even guys can be seen shopping here.
At Cabo Cantina, I sit back and take in the scenery while enjoying a Torta.
A daily 4-7pm Happy Hour 2 for 1 Margarita would be a nice complement.
From the cliffs of Santa Monica I view a wide beach expanding as far north and south as I can see.
The World Famous Santa Monica Pier lies to the south. A walk along the pier is a must.
Venice Beach is just a few miles or less to the south or Malibu Beach about the same distance to the north.
