Redondo Beach Pier


How was your weekend?  As you can see, mine was beautiful.  I had a quick visit at the Redondo Beach Pier.  This gorgeous structure offers an amazing ocean view.  The original pier was built in 1889 but this horseshoe designed pier was constructed in 1995.
  



Redondo Beach is part of the area referred to as the South Bay here in SoCal.  The other nearby beach towns part of the South Bay are Hermosa and Manhattan Beaches.  Remember this post from Hermosa and this one from Manhattan?

I  could look out to the sea forever. What a great place to clear your thoughts, do some soul searching or just dream.
After enjoying a walk around the pier, we headed onto our next destination : Long Beach.  Come back tomorrow for a look at  Snoop Dogg's hometown!

Do you have a favorite pier or boardwalk?

I don't know them well enough, just stumble on them by accident, but I love them. My first one was San Clemente, really caught me by surprise!

The sea truly inspires thoughts and calmness in me as well! I love your post from this weekend. That first picture is so pretty, you should enter it in a photo contest! I always love looking at your travel posts from California.

I love piers! But don't remember the ones I stepped on well enough to pick a favorite..., maybe I wasn't wowed yet!

Oh, this is where I grew up. Let's see, there was Tony's and Cattleman's. Are they still there? My husband I used to go there. My hang out growing up was Manhattan pier, but we went to Hermosa and Redondo all the time too.
Thanks for the memories. I haven't been there in quite awhile. We were just at Newport this week though :-)
Blessings,
Marcia
