— As you know, I’ve just had an amazing time exploring the Channel Islands (specifically Santa Cruz Island) and can’t wait to share my trip with you. It’s best if I break it down into the four parts that make up the trip: Getting There, Kayaking + Setting Up Camp, Hiking the Island, and Ventura Harbor. —
Part IV: Ventura Harbor
If you’re looking for a fun day trip, but can’t commit or pay for the trip out to the Channel Islands, come spend the day walking around the Ventura Harbor. When we came back to the mainland, despite being crazy tired, we decided to walk around and explore before our trek home.
The boats, the blue sky + water created fun reflections.
We had to stop for a dinner at the popular Andria’s Seafood. It’s the type of seafood shack where you order at the counter and wait for your number to be called. I got the Mahi Mahi burger. They have all the fried classics too.
After such a big meal, we had to walk around to settle our stomachs before sitting in the car. Above is the Fishermen’s Memorial, which is dedicated to the residents who have passed at sea.
Color fun 🙂
Above is a boat B+B, which we nicknamed “murder boat” (in all fairness, I’m sure it’s a great place to stay).
The sun started to set sending warm colors throughout the sky. Such a beautiful dramatic sky.
It was time for our weekend trip to end. After the last photo was taken, we said fair-well and made our drive back into Los Angeles. We made great time (considering it was a Sunday night). If you’re planning this trip and have any questions, email me! I love mail.
