Ballona Lagoon and Venice Canals--and garlic-fest at Gaby's

NIGHT HIKE AT BALLONA LAGOON & VENICE CANALS

 

LOTS OF WATER AND BIRDS

 

4 MILES AND 2 HOURS HIKE/WALK, part on a dirt path, part on sidewalk in the Venice Canals

 

DIRECTIONS: In West L.A/Marina Del Rey area--take Washington Blvd all the way to the beach. Two blocks before the Venice Pier, turn left on Via Dolce and go 1/2 mile. At the fork, go straight. (The left fork is Marquesas and that leads to Via Marina--DON'T go that way!) The right fork stays called Via Dolce and we will be parked next to the big lagoon, between Marquesas Way and Roma Court.

    A very pleasant hike. I loved the gentle Wednesday night walk, and the easy-going people. This was a great way to give back to the body and soul.
