for three years i've been begging andre to please take me on the ferris wheel, but he always seems to chicken out once we get to the gate (he's terrified of heights), not quite sure what changed his mind this time, but i'm glad he agreed because i had the best time taking photographs from the top of the wheel, and to be honest, i'd do it all over again if he asked me.
this was the pacific plunge ride happening right next to us while we were all the way at the top. it was much higher than i'd originally anticipated, maybe because we're high above the pacific? it was a little freaky, i'll admit it.
i also went a little insta-crazy up there.
be sure to visit the santa monica pier if you're ever in los angeles, and definitely grab some cotton candy for me.
