Fab Friday... September Edition

OK, OK, OK... I haven't posted a thing here in forever. But I"m here now and want to share some fun times recently.

For our FAB FRIDAY adventure in September (my month to choose) we headed north to Marina Del Rey to explore an area neither one of us had been to. Instead of focusing on the (many) restaurants or Fisherman's Village, we headed to the north side of the channel; to the North Jetty Promanade.

It proved to be a nice easy waterfront walk with the channel on one side and homes (including one with canons & a pirate standing watch!), giving way to the the beach, on the other.

We strolled down the promenade, watching the boats coming home & going out. We saw planes taking off from LAX, other people out for a walk, a lovely beach garden, the start of the Venice boardwalk, and the start (end?) of the Venice Grand Canal. We saved all of the canals for another adventure.

Of course, we had to visit one of the above mentioned restaurants for lunch. Our choice was The Cheesecake Factory - because I was craving their avacado egg rolls! We had a wonderful view of Mother's Beach, where the stand-up paddle boards launch. Then, some egg rolls, salad, fish & chips, and adult beverages brought out Fab Friday adventure to an end!
