Our stateside séjour was very eventful this spring, and it ended with a trip down to southern California, where we visited family, conducted some business, and even partook of a little R & R on the beautiful L.A. beaches.
Venice on the Beach Hotel
Once we got a glimpse of where we were staying, we decided we would switch to another hotel. When we were having no luck finding another place to stay at the last minute, we gave in and decided to check into the Venice on the Beach Hotel, as planned. It was a bit funky, but we actually warmed up to it, and even decided that we would stay there again in the future. The location is great – right on the beach. And, we decided that funky is just part of the Venice Beach experience.
Morning Run along the Beach
Bicycling from Venice Beach to Santa Monica
After our morning run, we picked up a couple of giant sandwiches at Shoop’s Delicatessen at 2400 Main Street in Santa Monica. Later we rented some bicycles at one of the many rental kiosks along the Venice Beach promenade, and rode along the 8 ½-mile bicycle path from Venice Beach to Santa Monica Beach. We even found picnic tables on the beach for our picnic.
