Our Exploration at The Beach!

Two weekends ago we decided to do some exploring. We are planning on exploring some new area each week so when we have visitors we will know the hot spots to see. So we decided to visit Venice Beach. We took a longer way to drive up there to see more things. We had a map but once we got to LA we purposely took different freeways to see more and to make our own way there. We ended up in Santa Monica coast and it was so beautiful. We drove up and then down the coast and admired the beauty of the sea and the homes next to it. Once at Venice we found a place to park for only $3 a day. Most of the other places were $8-12 a day. We walked to the beach. It was very windy, but warm. Once there we watched the surfers, boats, and birds. Then we walked along the coast where there are shops, food, and lots of entertainment in many different forms, musicians, street performers, people statues, and much more. It was a lot of fun and very entertaining to see all the performers try to capture our attention and get some money for their shows.

There were also lots of birds flying around. There presence was undoubtedly made know to me when they delivered a wet gift, poop! I believe there was only one bird guilty of this crime, but he got me on my shoulder, both arms, my stomach, and my nose. Luckily I was wearing a sweat shirt so all I had to do was pull it off, but it made me want to puke. My dear husband helped me clean off my face by getting napkins and wiping my nose for me. We neglected to take pictures of this experience. I laugh about it now, but at the time I was sick.

After this we made our way home and then found and In and Out for dinner. One of the best In and Outs I have been too, great service and good food. All in and all it was a great Saturday.

As you can see from my hair it was windy!

We are our own Lewis and Clark in California and I love it.


  1. How fun! I am officially blog stalking you guys now, P.S. The beach is probably my favorite place on earth! I hope you guys go every day. Sorry about the poop though, that's lame.

  2. Looks like a fun day minus the bird poop. I'm glad you are having a great time in CA. I sure do miss you though.

  3. I REALLY miss In-N-Out. You guys are rad! So many adventures!
