CHRISTMAS IN LA 2014 – DAY 2: Venice Beach

CHRISTMAS IN LA 2014 – DAY 2: Venice Beach

Sat 27th Dec

Today we started out at Venice Beach where Karis bought herself a Lords of Dogtown skateboard! We then had lunch in a cool beach front cafe, before skating the path along to Santa Monica… stopping on the way to take plenty of videos and photos and to talk to random people, including this guy in the background who showed us his tricks on his BMX.

By the time we got to Santa Monica the sun was setting, so we headed up to the pier. 

By the time we got to the end of the pier the sun was perfectly setting… but the temperature had dropped, so was a tad chilly!

We couldn’t go on the pier and not go into the arcades, so headed for the shooting galery and slot machines… a homage to Southend or Blackpool… and then we found Zoltar from ‘Big!’

We finally stopped off at Bubba Gumps (Forest Gump) for a cocktail before heading home… totally shattered, so ordered a takeaway n watched Lords of Dogtown, keeping it topical ;-D

Perfect day in L.A. to start off the trip!
