Details to follow but think the 3rd Street Promenade, Palisades Park, and the Santa Monica Pier --- probably in reverse order. I'll provide more details, and my cell number as the time approaches.
We will meet right under the Santa Monica Yacht Harbor sign, at the entrance to the pier, @9:45 - 10AM. From there, we'll explore the pier and Pacific Park, for about 60-90minutes. About 11:30AM, we gather, back near the sign, and walk North, through the park, along Ocean Ave, to Wilshire Blvd. Take Wilshire to Third St. and turn South onto the Promenade.
With a group, it is always hard to stay together. We all see different things, some walk slower and others, faster. That's fine. Usually 2-3 people will join together for most of the walk, but we are all going in the same general direction.
Of course, you are also welcome to explore different directions. Some may prefer walking on the beach, and others may decide to head toward Venice. I've given the general route, just as a suggestion.
Parking: Kim has provide this map/app, to help you find available parking.
There are many places, along 3rd Street, if groups of us want to stop for lunch and conversation, about 1PM.
My cell is: (I'll email, in the AM, to those who have RSVPed). IMPORTANT. Call -- don't text. If I am driving, I can't respond and if I am walking/shooting, I don't want to stop and respond to text messages. I've had meetups where I received 20 text messages and spent more time responding than shooting :-) It's just faster for me to talk to you than to text.
