The second half of my walk through the Venice Canals. Most tourists coming to Venice never see the canals. And truthfully, they are more interested in seeing Venice Beach that they have heard so much about.
The two areas could not be more different although they were once both part of Abbot Kinney’s idea to emulate Venice, Italy on the shores of Los Angeles in the early 1900s. I’ll write more about the history in another post.
Whereas the canals are very serene and peaceful, the Venice Beach boardwalk is like a circus. I’ll have photos of that area in another post.
For walking I really prefer the quietude of the canals.
And stopping to look at the details.
Oh, those reflections!
I’ll be sorry when the holiday decorations come down.
But even without the decorations the canals are never less than picturesque.
This cat was very curious about my shoe. Perhaps he could smell some other felines I know.
Although there are many cats strolling around the canals, ducks rule!
