BeiBei, Allan, and I found ourselves restless and directionless Friday evening after we were done at work. After a stop at the nearby mall, Manhattan Village, we decided to drive over to The Strand @ Manhattan Beach to walk around and enjoy house-watching. Specifically, we set out to find a house that Allan had seen previously one evening when he was taking a walk on The Strand. This house has huge, life-size figurines of characters from animated movies, such as Sully from Monsters, Inc., Alvin and the chipmunks, and Donald Duck, on display, which can be seen through the windows. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get any good photos of these figurines because the spotlights (yes, apparently there are spotlights that light up each character) weren’t on tonight. This didn’t stop us from trying, which resulted in the following photos:
We spent the whole time playing around with camera settings, trying to see if we could manage to get photos of the figurines, to no avail.
Check out BeiBei’s post over at her blog; she’s got some awesome photos of the ocean view.
