Our Home Away from Home

     Welcome to "My Adventures with Steve and Walter"- a blog about our life in Marina Del Rey, California!  Even though I am technically challenged-  I think it will be the best way to keep our family and friends informed about our new experiences here (and I will learn much about the tech world along the way!).  

   I don't expect to have any blog followers that I don't know, but just in case you are wondering- Steve is my husband of 30 years and Walter is our 5 month old labradoodle.  This picture was taken at the south end of Venice Beach on the day after we arrived.  We couldn't get over how wide the beach was nor how crazy it was on the boardwalk.  Too bad I couldn't get my phone out quick enough to take a picture of a woman dressed in a bridal gown made out of trash walking down the boardwalk (she had a trail of men following her due to the fact that her gown was split up the back to her waist - and I don't think she had anything on underneath!  Thank goodness she did have on a long veil!)   We also saw a pirate riding a bike and I really think that he thought he was a pirate- who knows,  maybe he was!  And I had thought that I had seen it all, having lived in Daytona Beach area for the past seven years!  

   Our apartment complex is much larger than I thought it would be.  I love how well manicured the grounds are- makes for some enjoyable walks with Walter.



  1. I love it! I'm so glad you have a blog! You should post every day. :)

    1. Thanks for your help and for your encouragement! I don't know about posting every day, but I do have some catching up to do!

  2. Hi Melanie, we certainly do miss you, but can't wait to share your adventures In beautiful Marina Del Rey ! hugs, B

  3. I'm so excited about your blog. I expect daily adventure stories!

  4. I will be a loyal follower!! What you did to prepare your house sound similar to what I dis for Kyle and Carlyn except for our house was in much worse shape! I should have blogged instead of feeling sorry for myself! We are settled in NC and Mike is here which makes it easier to be away! Found a church online called Christ Community. It is an E-free church hope to try it out this weekend! I will be praying for you my friend! Enjoy your adventure!!! Love, Cheryl
