We left the house around 11:00 and drove to Venice, about a 45 minute drive, to Segway Venice. Once we found the place, we had time to get lunch before our appointment at 1:00. We found a little pizza place that served it by the slice, which made it quick.
We grabbed an outside table, each ordered a slice, which was actually the size of two slices and a soda.
Wendy found the Segway tours on Groupon, which saved us quite a bit of money.
|I love Groupon!|
We rode along the Legacy Trail, which is a wide, flat, paved path, stopping at a nice park for a break.
|Someone is showing off!|
Even when you are stopped, the Segway is still running so the only thing that keeps you stopped is you aren't leaning forward or back so you stay in one place.
My only complaint was that we didn't get a chance to stop to take more pictures and that we got back in about 1 1/2 hours, rather than 2. Otherwise, it was really fun. Wendy took a great "selfie" video of her and Dan but I can't figure out how to copy it. She did post it on FB.
From there we went back to the main strip to do a little window shopping and get gelatos...
|These are sooooo good.|
We have lighthouses, they have turtles and dolphins.
After looking through a few of the shops, very overpriced shops, we still had time available so we drove to the jetty. Bill and I have been there several times but have never seen such large waves and so many surfers. We walked to the end of the jetty and took pictures, just like tourists do ;o)
wait for it, wait for it...
|didn't even get wet|
What a fun afternoon. Relaxed a little when we got home, then went to TT's Tiki Hut for a drink
and a walk to the bridge for the sunset.
THEN, they treated us to dinner at a "new to us" restaurant, Torch Bistro. The food was surprisingly good, although we got there at the end of their day, close to 9:00. We would definitely go again.
Thanks for stopping by...
