Tony's On The Pier

Redondo Beach Restaurant
 "Tony's on the pier" is a wonderful restaurant, along with so many others that you will find in one location.  It is like a mini shopping mall, including a fish market with a tank full of crabs.
I just love seafood. How about you?  

I was visiting a cousin over the weekend and took this photo for Blue Monday.


Redondo Beach Harbor and Pier
Aside from restaurants and hotels, there is excellent fishing off the pier. I'm pretty sure in the state of California, a fishing license is not required to fish off the pier. The pier itself is so wide that it looks like a huge slab for a dance floor. You'll find jazz concerts held there during summer months. What does your pier like where you live? Ours is long and narrow with only one restaurant on the pier and a few around the harbor.

This paperback book and pirate activity sticker book,  is quite popular with my 3 grandsons. What I particularly like is that the stickers are reusable, so you will lots of activity time together. To see some pirate pictures and more information regarding the children's book, visit a former blog post, Childrens Books About Pirates


In 2010 I had a little time to experiment in iMovie on my computer. So I put together some slides and created the above video. I've got a grandson's birthday coming up in a few months so the pirate theme will be so much fun!


Happy reading and have a great Monday! I'm participating in the following memes:

  5. It's hard to get good fresh seafood when you live in the Midwest. We really relish eating the fish we catch when we go fishing in the lakes around here during the summer time. Ice fishing is not one of our hobbies.

  7. we have lake piers nearby but they are puny compared to this. some have cafes and a store but most are for boats/fishing and that is about it. I plan to be in San Fran next summer so will see some big piers.

    Cool photos! Thanks for the visit!

  8. When my kids were young, we always went to Huntington Beach. On the pier there, is a great lunch restaurant. I thought one needs a fishing license wherever you fish? BTW I didn't know you were a true blue Californian:):)
