Loving Long Beach

 This was the most glorious January weekend! We decided to head to Long Beach and it was 87 degrees.  Can you believe it? In January??!!  I had to tear off my nautical striped long tee and enjoy the sun.  Although I do live in Southern California, I still am eternally grateful for spectacular days like this one.
 You might recall B and I came out to Long Beach once before and fell in love with the architecture, so we decided to explore the beach a bit more.  The coastline is a little bit more industrial and not as dazzling as Laguna or La Jolla but for me, ANY day at ANY beach is phenomenal. 
 Of course you can't come to Long Beach without getting a glimpse of the Queen Mary.  It is definitely very majestic.
Long Beach is a very cool place.  I definitely would not mind living here one bit.  It is not often that you find a town that is truly diverse in its population and that is what makes this town so appealing to me.

oh how gorgeous! i'll bet it was a pleasant dry 87, not like here- when our temps get that warm, it's humid and icky.
long beach does seem an ideal place to live.

These pictures made my day!!! I love Long Beach and haven't been there in six years...was on the Queen Mary when I was just 16...many many years ago. Was there on my first California vacation, visiting my Dad and his new family. These pictures bring back those wonderful precious and priceless memories...thank you so much for that.

Have a wonderful week ahead!!!

Thanks for your Comment! I am definitely going to try the ocean sounds, I knew that put me to sleep on a cruise I once took. Thanks for sharing these amazing pictures, looking at them makes me feel warm even when we are expected to get 3-6 inches of snow! =/

I lived in Long Beach for 6 years and loved it (met and married my wife there). I really miss the culture and people. Thanks for the pleasant reminders.
