To mark the end of summer we headed to the beach this past weekend. This time we went to Venice beach and walked the boardwalk before going into the ocean. Venice beach is one of the craziest beaches in Southern California, it's filled with street performers, vendors, restaurants, tourist and artists. So naturally you will run into some crazy murals.
In recent years, the Venice culture has changed a lot. Drug use is openly seen on the boardwalk and the homeless community seems to increase every year.
The Venice boardwalk is one of my least favorite boardwalks but I wouldn't mind living in a building like this one! Maybe just for the summer?
If you walk about 1.4 miles you will hit the Santa Monica Pier...
but more on that tomorrow.
