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.

    The evening was great. Lot's of nice people attended and good conversations. Enjoyed meeting many new members. The walk was very pleasant because the Venice Canals are beautiful.

    The Venice Canals are beautiful and peaceful at night! A great opportunity to meet many people. Wish I had the time to talk to everyone, but enjoyed my conversation with many of you.

    Sorry, this one hit on the first Wed of the month, which is my union meeting. I've changed my rsvp and will attend in Nov.
