We decided to go South and spend the afternoon at Long Beach before heading to our next stop, Los Angeles.
Here we parked up at the Shoreline Village for a wander around. The Queen Mary is docked here and there are lots of restaurants and small shops around, you can also rent bicycles to explore.
Long Beach, like Laguna Beach, has a free shuttle bus to get you out and about if you don’t want to drive.
We grabbed a snack in the Yard House right by the marina. This has a wide variety of foods, meals and snacks. Really child friendly and good varied children’s menu. They gave Faye a little booklet to keep her entertained. Food was really good and reasonably priced.
After this we went down to the beach. The sand seems whiter here and the sea slightly warmer. As we were walking along the beach we noticed a man making giant bubbles. He had made a bubble blower with two sticks and some rope and was releasing these huge bubbles along the beach. Faye had a blast running through the bubbles for half an hour.
