July - A new look!

It's July! And it's summer. How about a little cool breeze from the beach? Each month, the banner at DOVES TODAY will post a new picture to celebrate the changing season. In July, we celebrate the lure of the beach and the Santa Monica Pier.

Did you know this year is the 100th birthday of the Santa Monica Pier? Join in the celebration! Come down and enjoy the Twilight Dance Series, play in the arcade, ride the carousel or ride the brand new Ferris Wheel.

Did you know that in May 2008 the old Ferris Wheel was sold on E-Bay and replaced by a brand new state-of-the-art solar powered wheel with LED lighting? Come down to the beach and check it out!

I was just going to ask if that was the old ferris wheel or the new. Heh. Do you know that, born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, and ALL the times I've been to Santa Monica and the pier that I never ONCE rode any of the rides? Talk about taking it for granted.

Funny how the ferris wheel has become such a part of the landscape that I haven't really looked at the new one to see how different it is.

The "old" ferris wheel wasn't that old, was it? Can't remember now.
