Long Beach

The city of 

Long Beach

is located on the Pacific coast, 18 miles (30 km) south of downtown 

Los Angeles,

 connected by a subway line. The ocean governs life in this region; sandy beaches, several big ports, waves crashing on the rocks... The peninsula is famous for its beautiful coastline and private estates. The city of Long Beach is named after a 5 mile (9 kilometer) zone of white sandy shoreline, ideal for those who love the ocean. It is here that you can find the famous transatlantic liner, the "Queen Mary " at its eternal moorage. However, it also pleasant to just take a stroll through the town. 
Long Beach welcomes tourists with its famous frescoes from 1938, showcasing a day at the beach. Times may have changed but the lifestyle of Long Beach has remained exactly the same for more than 70 years.

On our way to the sea...

A line of yachts and American paddle steamers:

The legendary transatlantic "Queen Mary" and a modern cruise ship, the "Carnival Splendor". Perfect fusion of the past and present...

A lighthouse...

A pleasure boat departing from the Long Beach Bay, leaving an unusually long trail of foam.

On our way to see the "Queen Mary"...

Leisurely paddle boating is a favorite hobby for workers in 

Los Angeles


A 'head shot' of the "Queen":

And some more landscape shots:

And this feathery friend was flying diligently as it gazed upon us . . .

This is the center of Long Beach, from the hill.

And now let's take a closer look at the legendary transatlantic "Queen Mary", the reason we came here!
