Last weekend, we went down to SoCal to spend some time with J’s family and on the beach (because who doesn’t love the beach!).
We started off with an awesome brunch at the “Galopping Hen” (ha, I love that name!) and in the afternoon I helped J’s Dad set up his new computer (and was repeatedly asked “how do you know these things? Haha!) and went out to dinner at the Ventura Pier.
On Saturday, I got to meet up with my sweet friend Maegan for a day of girls’ talk and antique-shopping. I don’t even want to think about the fact that it had almost been a year (!) since we had seen each other last. Luckily, she’s so easy to be around and we could pick up right where we left off last time :) Much fun was had and I hope we can do this again soon!
We had drinks at the Watermark in the evening followed by an awesome dinner at the Winchester Grill & Salon. Not pictured is the super-delicious Kerby burger (ground turkey with hot wing sauce and crumbled blue cheese) which I simply gobbled up too fast, it was so good.
On Sunday, we had breakfast at the “Busy Bee”, a 50’s diner in downtown Ventura (and one of the places that J took me when I visited his hometown for the first time) and then went on a spontaneous trip up the coast to Santa Barbara with J’s Mom.
The weather was beautiful, quite warm and sunny. We strolled around on State Street, went down to the pier and hung out at the Santa Barbara Roasting Company.
Monday we finished our trip with lunch at “Tony’s pizzaria” (which was on our agenda, for sure. It’s a ‘must-have’ when in Ventura and I highly recommend it if you should happen to be there!), coffee from the “Sandbox” coffeeshop and 2 hours at the beach.
… and how was your weekend?
