Ventura, north of LA, is so breathtakingly beautiful. I had not been there before (Anna recently moved there from Orange County) and was completely taken by the colors and by the unexpected surprise of an actual fabulous down town, not a common feature in most California cities.
We stayed at the Crowne Point hotel on the beach in Ventura. It was so beautiful, and perfectly situated for me to have easy access to the outdoors and the Pacific Ocean.

|The opposite view from our deck… Paul!|
|The grounds between the hotel and the beach were so perfect.|

Look at that view behind them!
|4 Mourers in one place, it doesn't happen often enough.|
|On Anna and Ryan's deck. It was a bit foggy this day, but on clear days|
the view is like the one pictured above at the park.
|Ryan is very talented on the acoustical guitar and treated us to some of his music. |
|I had to throw this photo in. It's posted on pools throughout California. |
I am still left wondering….. how do they check patrons of the pool
for evidence of recent intestinal events?
