Today, Kim took us to Venice Beach. It was new for Dai but not for me. We were very lucky with parking near the Venice Canals which was close enough to the beach. We had a nice walk in the perfect sunshine and stopped for coffee as well.

From there, we drove northwards passing various beaches along the way until Santa Monica. We didn’t stop as the crowds, traffic and parking was a bit crazy.

Daisuke wanted to do some shopping at Citadel Outlet Centre. We had set aside today for that. It turned out to be further than we thought, taking about 50 minutes. It was a very fruitful expedition for him. Kim bought a few items too but it wasn’t my kind of shopping.

We made the drive through traffic to Costco in Culver City. As we had allowed a bit of time, we got there an hour before my nephew Julian. So, we did all our picking and choosing beforehand. By the time Julian arrived, we were ready to pay and go.

Julian’s dinner idea was a hole-in-the wall Mexican place called Cinco de Mayo. It was cheap and good. I wish we had had more time to try more things on the extensive menu.
