I lived in Los Angeles for a time in the early 90's ... I came to it from New York City and have since returned to New York. I found California to be all that the stories and music and films promised it to be ... there was sun and ocean and long cool nights with tall girls more beautiful than I had ever dreamed ...

    Helicopters, riots, earthquakes and breakdowns? All while you were in California? Sounds like a typical day in our lives...

    Most people comment on your Venice, I hang on your burning thru-the-2-relationships-that- mattered-most-in-your-life... Weaving in local flavor while imbuing personal traces of yourself is what sets your tips apart from the rest of VT. Contented sigh.

    First time I have felt intrigued by Venice Beach.

    Mouthwatering story. I stormed through LA in a flock, my first and last agency tour. I would love to see and feel it all one more time.

    Venice indeed.... I lived right there on similar personal circumstances to yours... with similar experienced feelings.

    Excellent write-up Doc! It's been awhile since I've seen the shores of Carmel. Sounds like you found a little romantic nook in that area worth exploring! ;-) I'll have to look for Casanova next time (the restaurant not the legend) ........
