On Friday we spent the day at Ventura Beach. It was a 2 hour drive there, but we saw beautiful scenery along the way. Bakersfield is very flat, but everywhere you look there are mountains in the distance. We got to drive through some of those mountains and they were so pretty.
When we first arrived at the beach the morning haze had not burned off yet. We had a picnic on the beach and by the time lunch was over there were blue skies. It turned out to be a beautiful day!
After a full day at the beach we walked across the street to the marina and shops for dinner. The kids were so tired from not napping that we didn't get to stay for very long.
It was such a fun day! The kids didn't make it five minutes down the road before falling asleep. I am loving California! It is just so different from the east coast. No humidity, no winter, beautiful views. It doesn't even rain from March-October here in Bakersfield! Sounds like my kind of place!
