If you've been thinking that Venice's broad swath of beach is looking mighty fine lately, it's not just because you have sand in your eyes: it's been named one of the best restored beaches in the country. Three years of bad winter storms left the beach severely eroded and in need of "nourishment" (that's actually what they call it). "The 2011 restoration project required transporting 30,000 cubic yards of sand from an area north of the Venice breakwater to the damaged area near county lifeguard headquarters, about a half mile south."
