It's been over two decades since I've strolled down Ocean Front Walk in Venice Beach. Always turning right instead of left when visiting family in north Venice ( an upscale beachfront neighborhood with manicured promenades crawling with yoga pants and baby strollers ) we decided to turn left this time. It was Mother's Day and my husband was dying to see, "wacky Venice Beach" and my 73 year old mother couldn't have been more happy to join. As far as I can remember, little has changed. The "creatives" are still out in full force and the boardwalk of Venice Beach is still as colorful and as out there as ever.
Me on my phone while Mom takes it all in.
