Straight into the Wilderness: A Walk up Venice Fishing Pier
We wandered up Washington, past all the cafes and restaurants, until we hit the beach. And then, the pier. The Venice Fishing Pier dashes straight out into the ocean, cutting its way between brilliant blue waves—surfers on one side, the sandy stretches of Malibu and Santa Monica up the other. We walked to the pier's end, felt the weight of the ocean beneath us and all around and wondered how it is that a stretch of water that bounds a city of this size can still look so pristine. A lovely short walk to build up an appetite for dinner in Venice Beach.
