This section of Venice Beach is 'under construction.' I couldn't find anything explaining what was being constructed, but it's fenced off in orange fencing and these seven life guard stations are sitting together.
house I shot was designed by Frank Gehry - the same architect who designed the Disney Concert Hall I posted yesterday. There are more pictures at the link and information about the house - it was built in 1986.
This house was a few houses south of the Gehry house.
Back on Washington I passed Yo San University.
Then by my alma mater Venice High school, where they have a newly made statue of Myrna Loy. As it says in the plaque, the original statue was unveiled in 1922. It doesn't mention the gossip when I went to school here - that Myrna was expelled for posing nude for the statue. Here's more information on the statue and on Myrna Loy.
Then copying the route I used to walk home, I passed my junior high school, Mark Twain, now a "middle school." This was my homeroom.
And further down I found that a tree had toppled over at my old elementary school - Walgrove Avenue.
The real rain didn't begin until after I got home about an hour later.
