Ela’s Last Week: Santa Monica Beach & Portos

The last week of July was Ela’s last week in Los Angeles before she moved to New York to pursue her medical degree. Lilli and I got the chance to accompany her on her last chill-out session by Santa Monica beach. I usually go to the more populated area of Santa Monica beach, but this stretch was more peaceful, being at least a good half an hour’s walk to the pier.

I could see why Ela enjoyed it. Of course, my camera came along with us:

Ela took a trip down to Porto’s Bakery one day and came back with all these goodies:

Portos potato balls.

Portos bread.

Factory Tea Bar bubble tea and Kinder Bueno.Also, bubble tea from Factory Tea Bar! I think we originally went there after the day by the beach, but it was closed. So Ela made another long drive down to San Gabriel just to satisfy her bubble tea craving. She also got one for me, seeing as I’d never had it before. Thank you Ela!
