And then Tuesday Comes

Tuesday is the day we have to leave. Sigh.  Our flight isn’t until 2:20 so we manage to walk down to the Santa Monica Pier to check it out since it is in so many movies.  The Georgian Hotel overlooks the pier so I snap a photo for Kathryn in case she didn’t get one.

Then, it is off to Venice Beach to see the urban development project that apparently took about two years to complete.  According to Greg, the area  was very run down and used to be surrounded by 1,200 square foot shacks. Today, a series of canals and high-end housing abound.  Only a few refurbished shacks remain.   After a long enjoyable walk, it was off to a very late breakfast at 3 Square Café and Bakery followed by the long flight home, made longer by the loss of three hours.
