LA: day 9

Dad suggested that we eat breakfast at Cafe Buna, a local Marina Del Rey restaurant.. Apparently they have a wonderful avocado salad! Mom and I were skeptical, but we were pleasantly surprised when we walked in the doors! Breakfast was wonderful!! We really have lucked out on finding great restaurants on this trip!
 After breakfast, we headed to the dog park so Walter could get some exercise...
 Then we were off to Venice Beach to rent bikes for the day!
 We all got beach cruisers and biked with hundreds of other bikers and roller bladers.. It took us back to the 80's and 90's. Very "Saved by the Bell."
 Walking on the Santa Monica Pier
 So many people on the beach!!
 Then we grabbed lunch at "Hot Dog on a Stick."
 The freshly squeezed lemonade was perfect.
 It was a great day with lots of sunshine which I was very thankful for!! We headed back to the beach for sunset. It's so nice that the beach is just two blocks away from where my parents are living!

 Pretty lighting

Poor Brian is sick with a terrible cold.. He has been a trooper though!

 The perfect ending to a fabulous trip! I'm thankful that we were able to do and see so much! We're flying back to Atlanta tomorrow and go back to work on Monday. This has been one of the best spring breaks ever. I'm looking forward to returning to LA hopefully soon!!
