Freaks on a beach!

Venice Beach Freak Show California USA
Just one of the attractions on Venice Beach

Venice Beach is kind of like the Mos Eisley of California. Taking in the scenery and people watching, it’s an interesting place for a stroll. Apart from the expansive Pacific coast beach the denizens of Venice Beach are what you really come to see.

I had not been there in years but back in September I ventured down to Venice Beach to take a look around. I was in luck as on this day I saw Rasta Roller Dude (Musician – Harry Perry who was made famous in 80’s movies and TV shows where he is always seen on inline skates playing guitar), the snake charmer philosopher with rubber snakes, street peddlers, charity spruikers (never sure if they are for valid charities though?), street artists and so much more! Very entertaining indeed!

Venice Beach is the alternate version to it’s more upscale neighbour Santa Monica. They both make for an interesting day out when visiting Los Angeles!
