Venice Beach

My uncle, Alan, lives in Venice and we enjoyed an afternoon at his amazing home on one of the canals.

Then we strolled a few blocks down to the beach where we were greeted by this glorious sight:

That's Muscle Beach for ya.

Speaking of Muscle Beach, Lorelai took the opportunity to show off her skills:
