the grove, Beverly Hills, & food trucks!

On Tuesday morning we took Walter for a walk to the jetty. The weather was perfect! Mom kept telling me about the "June gloom" that Marina Del Rey is known for, but it has been absolutely gorgeous here!

Apparently, this is what Walter usually does when he arrives at the end.
 Paddle boarders! I really want to try this some day..
 The flowers here are beautiful!

 Exhausted and resting in the shade.

Then we went to The Grove and had lunch at the Farmer's Market! It's not a normal farmer's market... It's full of tons of international restaurants. We started out at a Malaysian restaurant, then had paella at Spanish place, and finished off with a French dessert crepe. We were stuffed. 
We walked around a bit and shopped at The Grove. I loved this outdoor shopping spot. It's where Mario Lopez films "Extra!" Sadly, we didn't see him.
We did a lot of eating on Tuesday... We were really close to Beverly Hills, so we headed over to Sprinkles Bakery for cupcakes! We bought seven and took them to go.. We split them all four ways so we could try the different flavors. I highly recommend the orange, lemon coconut, lemon blueberry, and dark chocolate cupcakes!
While we were in Beverly Hills, we walked up and down Rodeo Drive and did some window shopping.

Since it was Tuesday, we headed over to The Victorian in Santa Monica for dinner at the food trucks! Every Tuesday night food trucks congregate in a parking lot and people eat dinner in the park.

I promise, we didn't eat seven cupcakes before we had dinner.

Our favorite was the tikka chicken masala from the Indian food truck. YUM! 
 We sat in the park and ate. I loved the lights hanging from the trees.
 And then we went for a lovely walk on the beach with Dad. Burning off some of those calories!
