Yacht & Boats in Marina Del Rey

First, I would like to apologize for my super late post. My week was crazy busy, so I just didn’t find the time unfortunately. But now I’ll recap for you what I did last weekend. Justin & I went to the Marina Fest in the Marina del Rey harbor.

The marina, to me, is a special place – an escape from the big city life. I love how peaceful and quiet it is and not to mention the ocean breeze! Last week, they held the Marina Fest, a festival with vendors and exhibitors all about boating. Booths all set up shop in Burton Chase Park and their offers ranged from education about save oil disposal to realtor services. And as you can see in the next photo, some of them were even selling toilets.

We strolled around the park and looked at the old and new yachts, that were open to be boarded by the public.

The food options were unfortunately a little grim because only two food trucks were catering the event. India Jones was serving up Indian food and customers enjoyed Pork Belly sandwiches at the Pork Belly truck. The latter took a rather long break and the lined up queue of hungry customers jumped ship and gave their business to the Indian truck.

We were really hungry, too, so we bought some curry fries from the India Jones’ truck and they were absolutely delicious. Even Justin liked them, and he does not like Indian food. After the Pork Belly truck reopened, we finally got our sandwiches too and we ordered the PBLT sandwich, which was a BLT with pork belly instead of bacon.It was great, albeit a bit greasy.

A DJ pumped up the crowd with his music and many of the visitors took advantage of the free water taxi around the harbor. As we came a little late, we opted out of that fun.

All in all, we had a great time and I’d love to come back some time to picnic in this awesome park. That’s definitely on my to-do-list for this summer.
