There are towns that are great for living, and there are towns that are great for vacations. We discovered one of those rare places that is great for both. Redondo Beach, is on the sunny southern California coast just seven miles south of the Los Angeles International Airport. It is a “happy-happening-hideaway” by the sea.

When it’s hot downtown and inland, LA folks head for the beach towns, which are frequently 10 to 15 degrees cooler. There’s a series of three beach towns north of the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula that are great places to enjoy the sea and sand. Making it even better, there’s a paved beach walk called the “Strand” that connects tony Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach with our personal favorite, historic Redondo Beach.

Pearls

Great pictures of the Pick Your own Oyster/Pearl attraction at Mie Pearl Jewelry on the Redondo Pier

While we were walking around Redondo Pier, my brother steered me and his wife over to the pearl store. You pay to choose an oyster, and whatever pearl it contains is yours.

Linda and I each selected our oyster and the proprietress went to work shucking them and extracting our pearls. Linda got a cream-colored one. Mine was silver.

Brother sprang for mounting them too. Sweet!

Linda chose a pendant.

I chose a ring.
