  Venice Canal
by raraavis

Only two blocks seperate the weird Venice from the nice Venice. Venice Canals being the nice Venice. Ducks swimming in the canal, whimsical homes dot along the streets, well-kept lawn and garden add colors to the serene setting, and white foot-bridges criss cross the canals. Owners decorate their homes around Christmas time, making it especially festive.
Each time I return to the canals, I discover something new about them. On a recent lazy Sunday afternoon dog walk. We walked down many canals. Each one has its own character and history. Some canals are better kept and cleaner than others. One canal in particular has angry dogs.

Address: Entrance on Washington Blvd, two blocks from ocean
