Some of my favorite things to do: road trips, being near the ocean, discovering cute antique and vintage stores, finding a cool place to eat. It seems in California, there are so many awesome small surf towns full of whole-in-the-wall restaurants and thrift stores. One of the places my husband and I seem to visit often is Ventura, California. There is a street that you can walk down FULL of vintage stores, tons of coffee shops, old school movie theaters, and tons of places to grab a bite to eat. It's the perfect kind of date. Jump in the car, drive through vineyards, hills, and make our way to the ocean. We park our car and walk street after street. Popping in to each store, drooling over finds, grabbing a coffee or two along the way and eating some of the best fish tacos you will ever try! Not to mention the fresh ocean breeze and perfect weather! I keep photo journals of a lot of places we go. This is just one of them.
