On the Boardwalk

Venice Beach

sunny 70 °F

First day in Venice Beach - I'm traveling with my boyfriend (he is the surfer not me) and basically trying to do as much sunbathing as possible while he takes to the waves.

I had the best sandwich for lunch from Zelda's cafe on the Venice Boardwalk - and she threw in a bag of free donuts because I had to wait a little bit...I like this place already! Doug went surfing (even though there weren't any waves!) and I sat down on the beach but it was a little windy so I went back to the apartment and discovered we have a roof terrace on the top of the building, YAY! This place just gets better and better. We're staying at the Venice Breeze Suites located right smack bang on the boardwalk (www.venicebreezesuites.com). So I got my book, my sunscreen, my towel and headed up to the top deck. It's great because they have a wind shield thing around the edge so it's totally sheltered plus everyone kind of congregates up there throughout the day and you get to meet everyone else who's staying here.

You can also lazily just spy over the top down onto the boardwalk, watch the guys set up for the Venice Drum Circle ( every weekend they gather crowds playing drums, dancing, yelping like some kind of tribal thing it's really a sight to see!) and you can also see sweeping views of West LA to Beverly Hills and beyond, even the Hollywood sign on a clear day!

I am so happy here, Doug can surf to his hearts content. I was asking around for a good restaurant for dinner tonight but turns out everyone's chipping in for a BBQ up here on the roof so I thought that would be a great way to meet more people and save money! Plus we've got our own kitchen in the apartment anyway, but this is far more social or should I say socal - ha ha ha....
