A bonus artist date: City Walk of Abbot Kinney and the Venice Canals.
My friend Marni and I whipped out my card deck of City Walks: Los Angeles to find a super fun walk.
We settled on this walk of Abbot Kinney and the Venice Canals in Venice Beach, California:
Abbot Kinney has a slew of crazy characters. Though we didn't see the owner of this tricked out bike, we're pretty sure he or she qualifies as a crazy character:
Food trucks are a favorite along Abbot Kinney. Here's one such truck, the Baby Badass Burgers truck.
I do not appreciate being teased by a burger about my vegan ways.
Still, we got fries from this mocking truck. They were delicious!
Then it was off to my favorite stationery shop, Urbanic, where I came upon these pretty books:
his Etsy shop.

We turned a corner and BOOM! Canals!
Magic galore on our little artist date around town.
