DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL

IMG_1545
Dragon boat racing started in southern China over 2000 years ago and is now quite a popular amateur sport. One of the largest dragon boat competitions in California is held every year in Long Beach. In addition to the races, the festival offers dance performances and delicious food. What we were not prepared for was the calm water “beach” which our girls were immediately drawn to despite not having bathing suits or towels. So next year we will be more prepared.

FERNDELL NATURE PARK

This is a perfect hidden gem near Griffith Park. The trail is easy and shaded and parts of it boarder a stream filled with crawfish, guppies, turtles and other cool creatures. There is even a small playground and cafe.
