Statue Search (Life Adventurous Through Photos)

I enjoy long drives along the ocean.
((no this is not the start of a personal ad))
The scenery/nature/glory of creation is so lovely...
but I also like exploring such places in creative ways.

So earlier this week, a dear friend
and I went on an adventure up the coast. 
Our goal: take pictures with 10 statues.
The rules changed as the day went on...from having other people take
 our picture to getting creative with the timers on our cameras.
We mostly didn't have any kind of plan...just kinda stopped when we saw cool things.

This is the lone Sailor Memorial down on Ocean in Long Beach.
The little old lady taking our picture thought our pose was cute.
That's all that matters.

The Korean Friendship Bell in San Pedro was a jackpot for sure...

 I'm not sure what the story is with these two little guys...
but they were very happy indeed.

We ventured to the lighthouse down the hill from the friendship bell.
It was so cool, I've never seen a whale in my life...
so rad!!!

We headed up towards Palos Verdesish (I think...)
and as we were driving up a side street in a direction-less way, 
I spotted something old-looking in the trees.
It turned out to be an old truck/bed. 
Pretty snazzy eh? 

We found some random little statues along the drive...
it was so fun to keep our eyes peeled as we drove
and then veer over to the side of the street the second we spotted one.

We lunched near Malaga cove and it was quite the smorgasbord!
There was a fun little market/deli that had an amazing (GINORMOUS) BLTT
((bacon, lettuce, tomato, and turkey aka the ESSENTIALS))
We ate outside under a gorgeous tree,
sippin on our fabulous lemonade.

Ope can't forget the Seal Beach Seal!!
A classic for sure.

Overall, it was a fun day...
lots of driving and getting lost in conversation
with much laughter in between.

P.S. Sorry for copious amounts of Maddy camera actually broke when we saw whales and I got excited and tried to hop a Hilary took the majority of the pictures
