This view of of the Santa Monica Pier and the Bubba Gump Shrimp Restaurant. This was taken on the weekend so the pier was packed with people and the parking lot was nearly full. There is actually free parking a few blocks back but non locals never know this and get taken advantage of. Sometimes parking at a parking meter and not paying it resulting in a fine will be cheaper then a full day at some of these lots. The one here isn't to bad though. I just never park here because it takes too long to get in.
