Venice Beach Warnings and Dangers

    Rocks near shore

    by Godwit Written Jan 13, 2012

    Rocks on shore (wave area) which are just ankle deep in water look beautiful in pictures but are very slippery and sharp-edged. I slipped while capturing sunset pictures, fell on the rocks and ended my day with bruises on my leg.

    Sit and watch the sunset from beautiful piers built on the beach.

Venice Beach Off The Beaten Path

    Collecting Shark teeth and sea shells

    by Godwit Written Jan 13, 2012

    Venice is nick named 'Shark's Tooth Capital of the World'. Teeth are often the only part of the shark to be fossilized and since some sharks can lose nearly 30000 teeth during their lifetime, you will not go home empty handed.

    Shark teeth can vary in color from black to shiny gray depending on the minerals in the soil in which they have been buried. Most of the teeth we found near Venice beach were Black and less than half inch long.
