Lincoln Blvd, Santa Monica - Part II

Palm trees, jacaranda trees - welcome to Part II of Lincoln Blvd, Santa Monica (here's Part I). This is at the intersection of Lincoln and Ocean Park in the Ocean Park neighborhood.

Albertson's supermarket. One of the few commercial areas in Santa Monica that could be pretty much anywhere in Southern California.

Across the street is a mural of the Sierra Nevadas (think Yosemite National Park). I've driven by here hundreds of times - I have no idea what this building is.

Looking for a Hummer? Here's one for "only" $40K.

Next door is something called Livity. Probably not my kind of store.

"Earth Day Every Day" (or "Dia Tierra Todos Los Dias").

OK. Well, there we are. Definitely Santa Monica (or Topanga Canyon).

And across the street - my barber shop - "Lincoln Barbers." Been there forever, and at $13 is the cheapest haircut I've found anywhere on the westside. And they do a great job.

"Golden West Meats" (another Santa Monica institution) and relative newcomer "Misofishy (get it?) Japanese Cuisine".

Corner of Lincoln and Pico Blvd. Could be anywhere in Southern California. Take out the palm tree on the left corner and could be almost anywhere in America.

Looking east up Pico Blvd. Here's a link to a walk up Pico.

Looking down Pico Blvd - the beach is just 8 blocks west. This is where I crossed and headed back south to where my car was getting smogged.

By the way, if you're looking for a burger in Southern California, don't waste your time with "In & Out" - "Tommy's Burgers" is where it's at. There's one here on the corner of Pico and Lincoln.

There's also an L&L Hawaiian BBQ - a Hawaiian-based chain with several locations here in Southern California.

What's AMAZING is what's located behind L&L.

That's in Part III.

That building with the tree mural was an elementary school. Not sure what it is now though.
