This may be my most favorite path all time – the path along the ocean at Venice Beach. When we went on our California trip this past spring, Venice Beach was a half-to on my list of things to do – and delight of all delights, it didn’t look any different now than it did 40 years ago when I lived in LA. The hippie-tripees, the open restaurants, the chalk on the sidewalk and the art for sale along the way. And kids. And roller blades. And tambourines and songs. And surfboards. And I laughed.
