Day and Night

As you can see, I was sporting some awesome tan lines. Fortunately for me, the tan lines went away the weekend following our Los Angeles trip.

The Venice Beach area definitely had its share of eclectic people and places. Amongst all of that, though, are the canals (seventh and last pictures). The peace and quiet that surrounds you while walking along the canals is so soothing to where you just want to soak it all in for however long you can. My other half swears that the area is probably one of the quietest spots in L.A.

Hope y’all have a great weekend, no matter how you spend it!

Places to see in L.A.

I’m so excited to be fortunate enough to be overnighting in the West L.A. area near Venice Beach. Last time I was in L.A. it was for a good deal of one day but I still wasn’t able to see everything I had wanted to; however, I was able to go the touristy route and headed out to the Santa Monica Pier and Hollywood Boulevard. For my upcoming trip I’ve narrowed down some of the places I want to see to one particular list:

1.Amoeba Records

2.Venice Boardwalk

3.Venice Canals

4.Hollywood Forever Cemetery

5.Getty Center

6.Farmer’s Market

Luckily for me, my other half and I are staying at an Inn in the Venice Beach area that is walking distance to half the things on my list! For the others, it’s just a short drive away which of course is all due to some wonderful planning on a certain someone’s part 😉

For those in/from the L.A. area, I am welcome to any sort of restaurant or venue suggestions!
