Playing Tourist: in Ventura, Ca
LA is a big, fast paced city, Santa Barbara is a small, filled-with-tourists city, but sandwiched in between is the cozy beach town of Ventura. My husband spent half his life here, so we have all our favorite places down when we go back. We were there with family this weekend, so of course we went to some of our favorite places….
^^ Andria’s at Ventura Harbor & the beach.
We always get Andria’s classic fish & chips.
Fresh caught white fish, it’s the plumpest, juiciest fish, fried on a bed of “chips”. Squeeze fresh lemon on that and you’ll think you’re in heaven!
Then walk around Ventura Harbor, and take in the sailboats and bougainvilleas at every turn.
I would make a scary blonde! ^^
^^ You can rent paddle boats or kayaks ^^ (all sorts of boats; see above) and cruise around the harbor.
THEN cross the street and you’re at the beach…
AKG and his momma ^^
THe most beautiful flock of pelicans decided to fly by in a most organized, seemingly endless string.
Next time you come to LA, it’s worth the hour drive to stop by this beach town that still has orchards and fields of fresh fruits, fresh caught fish, and a breath of fresh air (literally).
