Here's a quick tour of the room:

We hit the breakfast buffet and I'm glad I ate a lot. . . you'll find out why later. Eggs, potatoes, fruit (lots of it!) blueberry muffin, one quarter of a waffle. . . the Hyatt buffets are always awesome! We left the hotel to go to Target, which was literally across the street. *Heaven*
I am a really good speed shopper, you guys. While S grabbed a printer I picked out two t-shirts, grabbed some body wash and razors, none of which had to be returned! One t-shirt had Dumbo on it, the other had Snoopy. They were just so soft and comfy and I'm all about comfort!
Once we were back at the hotel we had to wait for S to conduct said previously mentioned business so I started reading my Kindle (to finish The Lotus Eaters) and looking out the hotel window at the palm tree studded view. The next thing I knew, I'd take a three hour nap! Pretty nice =)
S finally finished with his business at about 430pm and we were able to start the almost hour long drive to Santa Monica Pier. We got caught in some traffic, but luckily the navigation was able to take us on a detour through regular streets. And not through the ghetto!
We paid the extortionate $12 for parking and got a prime spot right next to the sand.

We left the pier and walked across the sand to stand and paddle in the ocean.
