Mar 17, 2011 - Green Beer & sunshine

3/17 Day 11 It’s Saint Patrick’s Day…so our troop ensures that everyone is wearing green (we are, after all, a wee bit Irish). Carson and Hannah show up to our motel with fresh bagels and cream cheese…yum. We go on a hike in some canyon just south of Newport Beach…we see lizards, snakes, and a weasel (I almost called The Weeze and Jedd to announce my encounter)! After hiking, I shower and drive to Venice Beach to visit my friend’s friend, the lovely miss Dara. Mom and Hannah and Carson do some beach stuff. I navigate my way through LA’s...

May 22, 2009 - More muscles, more beach

We woke this morning to the sound of a pneumatic drill right outside our window, what with that and the motorbike engines and crazy people singing and preaching, we decided it was time to get up.

Steve is looking paler by the day... heh heh We...

We watched bums (of course) being drunk and generally making a nuisance of themselves, hippies selling stuff or giving psychic readings, tanned body beautifuls jogging past...

Sep 5, 2007 - Venice Beach

Next was Venice Beach. Later in the day you can see people roller skating and playing guitars and muscle men pumping iron. A lot of the hippies that used to live in the area in the 'hey day', are now working the strip as fortune tellers. There are a lot of opportunities to part with your money on all sorts of stuff. Mostly t-shirts though but some are great. The beach is pretty clean and the area is patrolled by police. The skate boarders get pretty close to you and seem a little perturbed when you don't react. Sorry mate, takes more than...
