USA – Los Angeles – Venice Beach – 14th & 15th August

Currently the weather in this part of LA has been fairly predictable, overcast / foggy up until noon and then the sun blazes through, 75F give or take a few with a nice cooling breeze near the seafront.

However most of the 14th during the day was overcast and nothing actually grabbed our eye, which is unusual. None the less we headed for sushi at Hama Sushi for the 5pm – 7pm “earlybird” bar menu which had selected sushi, various other dishes, beers and wine all at a reduced fee. California rolls never tasted so good. A stroll along the beach front brought us upon a large crowd of people who were dancing to the beat of lots of random drums. All sorts of people and characters jumped out, it was a strange little moment on a fairly quiet evening.

The following day, after an early morning run and homemade breakfast, we once again explored some of the Venice canals. They are a great place to wander around whilst having a good nosy at the huge variety of houses on display, these must be worth a fortune! Luckily our host has a bicycle that we can use and this is probably the best way to see the local area, especially the beach path system for “Peds” and “Bikes” which is a great ride past Santa Monica, or in the opposite direction towards Manhatten beach. So while Helen is doing her yoga, Dave is cycling the beach paths enjoying the views and topping up the t-shirt tan!
