This part of town had a number of these 'quinceanera' shops.
Quincenero is a celebration of a girl's fifteenth birthday with its roots in Latin America. It traditionally celebrates the transition from childhood to womanhood.
Grand Central Market
I wonder how many people have had their photo taken with this sign in the background.
The pier was full of eating places and funfair rides.
There was also an old carousel housed in its own building, similar to the one I saw in San Francisco.
Lots of working out going on.
I walked along the beach to Venice Beach which all the guide books mention as a place not to miss.
|This section was known as Muscle beach where there were a few showing off their muscles but I didn't want to add to their egos by photographing them!|
It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and there were so many people out enjoying the weather and the beach but what I enjoyed the most was being able to easily find space for myself.
