Venice-Santa Monica BeachWalk
This is a fill in hike for the 5th Wednesday in the month. We will meet at the beach at Lifeguard Tower 26 which is at the end of Ocean Park Blvd.
We should be able to Park at Lot 5 South which is right there. If not I have parked at the Public Lot off Hill St. near Nielson Way, which is only a block or two away.
We will walk North up the beach and cross over to Tongva Park which has some cool viewing areas and sculptures. Then walk down through the Pier and back down the beach to the cars. This is an easy walk, only about 3 miles.
If you wish to get more exercise plan to walk on the sand for part of the way.
Possible dinner at Urth Cafe.
