|We started the day with a car wash for the Mirage, she needed it with all the dead bugs all over her, you could barely read my front license plate. We then went to Venice Beach, where we walked a long ways along the water and then back up the boardwalk to see all the freaks. Unfortunatly, muscle beach and the skate park were closed and under construction which took alot of the fun out of Venice Beach, but there was still enough crazies around. We then drove a bit more south to Manhattan and Hermosa Beaches, were we walked the boardwalks a bit more. We stopped by the La Brea Tar Pits and looked at some displays, nothing too exciting there. For our evening, we headed for the Santa Monica pier, where we ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp. Kinda of a chilly night, but tons of people out and about still.
