Venice Beach

August 6th: On Sunday we went with Jon's parents to Venice Beach. It was crowded and touristy, but pretty neat to see. We walked by the "muscle beach" area where testosterone-filled men lifted weights just to show off. We saw many rollerbladers - and a cement area where several people were hip-hop dancing... on roller skates. :) (There was also a really old guy there doing his own little jig, without skates.) We then walked all the way down a sandy stretch to see why a huge crowd was gathered there... several people had brought out their percussion instruments and formed a drum circle around whoever wanted to dance in the middle. Very hippie-ish. :)
