L.A. County beaches reopened for "active use" on Wednesday. So, did visitors follow the rules? Sort of.
Here's what we saw:
Venice was much more crowded on Saturday than Wednesday (not surprisingly). A lot of visitors were sunbathing on the sand, which is expressly not allowed, although we know that public health offcials take into account that most people won't follow the rules. Some people chose to skirt said rules by sunbathing on the grass...near the sand. Also bikers were definitey using the (closed-ish) path.
