Venice Canals of Los Angeles


So while it's really nice sitting outside on my balcony while typing here, the internet connection isn't very strong. It is taking forever uploading these photos... On the upside though I get to enjoy being outside doing nothing while waiting.

Whoever suggests that LA isn't a romantic city clearly hasn't payed a visit to the Historic Venice Canals. Probably one of the most romantic places ever, I'll go out on a limb here and say it probably is even more romantic than the Venice Canals of Venice,Italy. No motor boats, no people, the occasional free spirit singing while paddle boarding which makes for some quaint background music. Best of all, most stunning sunsets ever. I'm talking pink skies with cotton candy shaped clouds. And to top it all off, overgrown rose bushes around every corner. That's pretty romantic right?!
This area is so different from the rest of LA. To be hones every area in Los Angeles is completely different, that's what makes it such a wonderful place. 
Still it's very calm down here, the canals are a walking zone only and duck crossing obviously. 
Anyone traveling to LA should visit this place. Along the canals there aren't any shops of cafes but just beyond them there's this cute little street called Abbot Kinney packed with wonderful spots to indulge, more on that in an other post though.
You should just take your time walking around, taking beautiful pictures of the place where a man realized is dream of bringing the Venice Canals to California. 
For me most fascinating is how every homeowner designs his living space as his heart desires. 
No property maintenance rules.
Sort of an architects paradise. 
Or maybe more of a bohemian paradise.
