A Weekend Morning in Venice Beach

Nov 21, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Our much needed rain is upon us this weekend, but last weekend, I spent a quiet weekend morning on a very small section of Venice Beach.

Unlike today, it wasn’t raining, and it was still fairly early, but the activity was still in full swing. Venice has such a unique vibe to it. Each time I go, I discover something new.

And this weekend morning was no different.

I’ve already written about my discovery of a new mural, Venice-kinesi, which is replacing Venice Reconstituted, both by well-known muralist, Rip Cronk.

However, the new discoveries dydn’t stop there.

Even though I’ve been to this location several times and seen the artwork on the ground, I never noticed this particular part where the name VENICE is spelled.

Of course, on any given day, you might find someone feeding the various fowl that inhabit this section of the beach:

This gentleman has quite a following, just look at the size of his bread bag.

Of course, on any given day, you’ll find the Venice Graffiti Artists in full swing.

Everyday on the Venice Art Walls, the Graffiti Artists create new images that are full of color, images, and life. After all, how many places can you go and watch the artwork unfold right in front of you?

And what are all of these people looking at?

The Venice Skate Park of course.

This is the first time I had the opportunity to visit the Park, which just celebrated its one year anniversary last month. It’s fun to watch the various skateboards and what they can do.

In addition to the activities listed above, on any given weekend morning in Venice, or weekday, you’ll find an endless array of things to do and to keep you busy around here–swimming, surfing, biking, walking, shopping, eating, and having a ton of fun once a month at Venice’s First Friday ion Abbott Kinney.

And this little story of mine was about how I spent my weekend morning in Venice in the very small section of it, just west of Windward Circle, right under the Venice sign.
