L.A. ADVENTURE {4}: VENICE CANALS

After the amazing poke, my sister and I took a detour through the Venice canals. I haven’t walked through the canals in years; it is such a beautiful stroll. I felt like I was on vacation even though it was in my own neighborhood. That is one thing I love about L.A, no matter where you are you can instantly feel like you are on vacation.

I even came across this rad swan paddleboat; I need to take a ride on that.

I also loved that every bridge was different. No matter where you turned there was either a solid, or wood paneled bridge. I need to get back in to my L.A. adventures; it really is fun exploring new parts of the city.

Stay tuned for my next adventure. Check out my past adventures herehere and here

L.A. ADVENTURE {1}: WATT'S TOWERS

Over the weekend I had this overwhelming feeling to do something different. So I had the bright idea to start exploring L.A. Even though I have lived here for years, I feel I take this city for granted. So with that said, twice a month I will visit a new spot and bring some friends along for the ride. I am really excited to see where the city takes me.

For my first stop; Watt’s Towers. Surprisingly enough I have never visited this place. It is quite amazing. The only downside I missed the open to the public window by a half hour (so I will be coming back). For now I just admired it from outside the fence. It has a pretty amazing history, built by Italian immigrant Sabato Rodia over a 33 year period. Constructed mostly from found objects like pottery, scrap metal and sea shells. One thing I found interesting he actual had a bungalow within the towers.

I highly recommend checking out the towers, it is a great place to visit and explore.

Located at, 1765 E 107th St, Los Angeles, CA 90002

BEATING THE L.A. HEAT

Last weekend I spent most of my time at the beach. I live 5 minutes from the water and have yet to spend time in the sand this summer. Since the weather was insanely hot the only way to cool down was to take a dip in the cool ocean water. So I hoped on my bike and took a ride to the only cool spot in LA.

I really love just sitting in the sand and watching the waves crash along the shoreline. There is something so serene and relaxing. I also took some pictures of my weekend escape. I wish I was there right now.
