walk on the Santa Monica beach, brunch at Back On the Beach Cafe with Lili. After lunch, we decided to drive up to paradise point. The parking lot was full, so we continued down to Zuma Beach for a nice beach walk. On the way back, we checked out Paradise Cove again. $40 for parking! parking was full, so we bailed and headed down to Dukes for an early dinner. We decided to wait to sit on the patio. after getting seated, a great table along the sides opened up. apparently, there was a third wait list for those tables. next time.
