The Wild Frontier of Venice Beach

Venice Beach, CA is a wild frontier that takes the outdoors shopping experience to unusual extremes. You don’t have to enter the shops to find out what the keeper is selling. They’ll make it known loud and clear as you pass by; like the busty young attendant wearing a lime green jumper in front of a ‘physicians clinic’ (one of many) who asked me if I needed any medical marijuana. I politely said, “No,” and kept walking. A few doors down I could have gotten any assortment of tattoos or body piercings. I kept walking. I passed Muscle Beach and saw weightlifters whose biceps were nearly as big as my waist (which I’m working on). The men lifting weights had even bigger biceps :)
