Ventura Weekend : Ojai Spa

Kevin came with me to Ventura when I did the Women's BC test for Scuba Diving Magazine and we decided to make a weekend out of it since he had to be there for work anyway. It ended up to be a gorgeous weekend there and the drive there was beautiful. Since we had so much rain earlier this year, the mountains were green and wildflowers were in bloom! Check out this picture below! We stayed at a hotel on the beach and it was nice to look out of our balcony to see the water (we would see dolphins swimming by from our room!) and walk right out on the beach. We even went for a nice little run right on their version of "the strand" which was a nice paved path just at the edge of the beach so it made it a little easier to run.On Sunday, Kevin surprised me with a drive to the Ojai Valley (pic above) and its this little small town surrounded by mountains. It was such a beautiful sight. In Ojai, there is a world class spa that sits on 220 acres and has 300+ bungalows you can rent, a golf course on grounds, multiple pools, etc... He took me for an afternoon of pampering-- lunch by the pool, lounging in hot tubs and a couples massage in the Sunset Suite... it doesn't get much better than this! This is a classic picture of Kevin... we basically looked like this all afternoon! I didn't want to leave!!! You know how much I love Glen Ivy and Burke Williams but Ojai blows both of those places away! I can't wait to go back there to visit. For more pics from our weekend, click here!
