Where I stayed
Today we walked down through Venice Beach to Santa Monica Pier..then some shopping on the Promenade..I purchased an electric kettle so I can make a cup of tea without using the Coffee machine and have it taste like coffee.. It has paid off already as I had the nicest cuppa ever when we got home.
We saw some wonderful sights along through Venice Beach...There are sooooo many Bums and young dope addict bludgers that its hard to have any sympathy for them as they are just lazy..too lazy to work.. They beg and offer all kinds of lame services for a buck, like..read Poetry, offer shit advice, smile, share a picture and the list goes on, some sell paintings that they have obviously done when they are stoned out of their brain...it makes me wonder how they survive to keep there drug supply up.. We passed one guy this morning heading down to the Pier he was fine, collecting empty cans & bottles....when we came home this afternoon he was flaked out beside a bin with his cart beside him full of the empty cans & bottles..Its hard to work out if they are dead or alive, stoned or asleep..I am just happy that its not one of mine.
We stopped at a bar tonight on the way home ..The Venice Beach Bar & Grill, it was really good
Almost forgot...we survived an Earthquake in LA !!!!! Yesterday the tour guide was rattling on about LA having earthquakes every day...most unfelt as they are weak ones ..Sooo last night I wake up with the bed moving and I was thinking I was dreaming because the Guide had harped on about them yesterday....But turn on the TV and there it was ..Epi centre was Marina del Ray and wher are we Marina Del ray 3.4 on the Richter scale....
