Greetings from Long Beach, California! We're just 30-40 minutes south of Los Angeles. I was bummed to leave Palm Springs but we'll be back some day. Our departure from Palm Springs went smoothly!
We're settled in at the Golden Shore RV Resort. I like it. The sites are average sized. The grounds are well maintained. The pool is heated and is accompanied by a large hot tub. When the tide is in, we're on the water. Yeah, I'll have some photos tomorrow. On one side of us is the water (Long Beach Harbor) and the other is the skyline of Downtown Long Beach City.
Jim was anxious to explore today. We braved some traffic to go to Venice Beach. What a fun place. I found a link with it's history here if you'd like more information. Vendors line a long strip of an area called Muscle Beach, selling their wares, but not in a pushy way. Freaks are bountiful here as well as street performers. I've never seen so many drug paraphernalia stores in one spot. Some of the stores should just be called Bong-Mart. Other popular stores housed sunglasses. Oh, I can't forget the henna tattoo stands. I'd say all the rest were an assortment. Vendors mostly line one side. The other side of the road seemed to have entertainers, performers, and hand made crafts.
