Venice Beach

Venice Beach is the epitome of a Californian oceanside paradise. You got your cloudless clear blue skies, vast ocean, palm trees swaying in the wind, colorful graffiti walls (and palm trunks!), the quirky souvenir shops along the Boardwalk, cafes and clothing boutiques on Abbot Kinney... and the list goes on. My friend Tina introduced me to areas I've never explored, including a delicious ice cream parlor from Portland called "Salt & Straw" where we tried a goat cheese & black olive brittle ice cream. Coming straight from freezing Japan, this ocean breeze was exactly what I needed to revive myself. Thanks Tina for a much-needed day trip!

ベニスビーチは、ざっくり言うとカリフォルニアの海岸沿いパラダイスの縮図です。雲が一つない青空、広々とした海、風に揺れるたくさんのヤシの木、カラフルなグラフィーティ、ボードウオークにずらりと並ぶ数多くの面白いお土産屋さん、アボットキニーのお洒落カフェとブティック・・などなど。友達のティナちゃんが、私の知らないベニスビーチを色々紹介してくれました!特に気に入ったのは、ポートランド出身のアイスクリームショップ「ソルト&ストロー」。山羊の乳とブラックオリーブをカラメル状にした粒のアイスを食べました!すごくさっぱりして美味しかった♪ 日本の寒い冬から、すずしい波風でちょっと生き返りました。ティナちゃん、連れて行ってくれてありがとう!
