STROLLING THE VENICE CANALS

Strolling the Venice Canals | House of Harvey

It’s like they were something out of a legend. I heard about the Venice Canals (west coast version, not sinking Italian version) for so many years…maybe even a decade…but never once did I attempt to visit. Until this past weekend.

On a gorgeous Saturday afternoon, I packed the pup, my NEW camera (can’t even tell you how amazing this camera is!), a coffee and some positive vibes and headed down to the beach. The sun was brilliantly shining and the temperature could not have been more perfect for a leisure stroll through the amazing canals of Venice Beach, CA.

SIDE NOTE: Sometimes I joke with Harv to give me the “over the shoulder smolder” camera pose, and by golly, he did just that for this snapshot. He amazes me on the daily.

We saw countless dogs, ducks afloat the water, festive holiday decor and neighbors sitting out on their porch or canoeing long the channels hollering out friendly “hellos” to everyone who passed. It was The Truman Show come to life in the So Cal setting with all of the charms of a throwback era. Simply captivating.

For those who live in the So Cal area or are looking to pay a visit, I cannot recommend it enough.

    The canals are one of my favorite spot to bring out of town guests. I feel like it always impresses people and even though I’ve explored them dozens of times the charm never wears off!

      It was our first time ever (which is pathetic having lived in SoCal for nearly 20 years!) and we just LOVED them. Would like to make it a monthly ritual to just relax and stroll those amazing paths.
