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.
