While Rand was once again showing off his public speaking skills (and meting out crazy doses of charm) I decided to roam around the city a bit. The only problem? Everything in L.A. is miles from everything else, nothing is within walking distance, and I didn’t feel like driving. Los Angeles is a terribly walking city, but we were fortunately rather close to Venice Beach, which made for a semi-interesting walk.

1. Surf/Swim sign

I wanted to walk up to it and scream, Dont tell me what to do! But I thought people wouldnt get it.

2. Carved Heart on the Venice Pier

And unlike the rest of the pier, mercifully free of seagull poop.

4. “Welcome to the Beach” sign

5. Meepos & Company, Inc. facade (I suspect I am the only person who would find this funny.)

Dude, cousin Balki has totally moved up in the world.

They say nothing about falling off drunkenly. LOOPHOOOOOLE!

I assume this was painted by the colorblind. Or possibly Italians.

In Washington, we call this a drainage ditch.
