La Dolce Vita in Venice

In Venice Beach, the sun is shining and the weather is just perfect for a stroll along the canals. 





This little duck is keeping cool on a particularly warm spring day. 


I love to look at the houses along the canals and imagine what it would be like to live in this neighborhood. How fun it would be to have a little boat docked in your backyard.




Sea shells hanging from the tree branches are a pretty reminder of the ocean just a couple blocks away.   


As I cross over these quaint white wooden bridges that span the canals, I am always eager for the chance to explore another tucked away corner of this charming community.   


Wishing you a week filled with light, beauty, and a little exploration of your own.

I would like a rowboat docked in my backyard and a canal at the end of the yard.

What an enchanting place. Growing up in Los Angeles, I've been here maybe once. To go again would be enlightening, to gather what I missed that one and only time I went. Have a super day, Nel!

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

Nel a beautiful post and I'd love to wander through Venice CA one day. On a HGTV House Hunters episode they featured a gorgeous home with a huge window on the back right on the water. I wonder if it was the house to the right you photographed,

Nel,
Delightful!
I too would enjoy having a charming cottage along the canals with the knowledge that the ocean was just a short distance away-perfection:)

Nel, that looks like Renecke strolling along the canal, love that picture! And those sea shells dangling from the tree are pretty. It looks like a peaceful day. :)

Hi Nel, I haven't been to Venice Beach in years. I think it's so pretty there. I grew up in Orange County and would go there occasionally. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful photos!
Hugs, Jody ♥
