It was a long girls weekend with Danielle’s bridal shower(post on ” The paper mystique”) in Thousand oaks and then down to Long Beach to spend the weekend with Marissa. A lot of driving but well worth it as we had a blast at Long beach and Belmont shores. Belmont Shores spans 2nd Street and Ocean Avenue near the southernmost part of the city between Bluff Park on the west and Naples Island on the East. Second Street and the fifteen intersecting side streets make up the business district of Belmont Shore. The neighborhood features Spanish-style homes from the 1920s and 30’s as well as beach bungalows. We were out late Sat. night and got up late Sunday morning but just in time for some yoga on the beach…
The yoga on the beach is free with a donation and I was surprised to see so many people. The mantra for the day was
” All my relationships are encoded in love and infused with joy “
I must admit the scenery was amazing ! I loved yoga on the beach it was so much more relaxing, and the connection to the earth elements made it that much more refreshing !
Next we headed to 4th street which Marrisa said was a great place for Vintage boutiques.
Elans Collections, vintage furnishings, upholstery and accessories.
A lot of very cool retro cameras…I should buy one.
Ok I did the one that is missing from the shelf, should be cool for some photo shoots.
Looks like a cool shop…
wow these clothes are very cute.
I really liked the shoes on the bottem roll. About $150.00 to start.
Now this was one of my favoite stores “Liberty”
The dressing rooms doors are old refrigerators doors how clever ! So very sixtys !
We ended the afternoon with some Alfresco dinning at the Portfolio. Mango ice tea and grilled pannini.
Next post to Naples Island and then to the beach to watch kite surfing.
Also Marissas photo shoot on the beach… post on my Simply Natural Photography blog.http://simplynaturalphotography.wordpress.com/
