A few Pictures from Muscle Beach Venice in Los Angeles

Walking round Muscle Beach and did notice that a lot of the machines at the Body Building place where broken. And they want 10$ for a day pass. Well – i did some research and that is what i found: “The original Muscle Beach in Santa Monica was closed in 1959 due to difficulties in the maintenance and supervision of the facility. Yet even to this day many of its patrons still frequent the actual setting of the original Muscle Beach on weekends to enjoy gymnastics as well as playing in the sea and sun. While a new generation of gymnasts and fitness buffs congregate into the 21st Century at Muscle Beach in Santa Monica, some of the “old timers” from the golden era of Muscle Beach in the 1940s and 1950s still stop by.” This is what http://www.musclebeach.net/ said it is. Very well so it is now Muscle Beach Venice and it does not look good – at last the work out place. But next to it are lots of free toys for the big boys in the sand.
3 pictures of a street show and than it is over to the sand box for some action. That afternoon – at last the 30 minutes i did watch – was kind of a competition going on. Who could do best on one of the toys.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
