Weekend in Oxnard

This weekend, Glenn and I headed North of LA to Oxnard to dog/apartment sit for Glenn's friend Brian and his girlfriend Sarah. It was really nice to get away from the traffic and hustle and bustle of LA for a couple of days . Brian and Sarah's apartment overlooks channel islands harbor and sailboat docks, so it was very picturesque.

On Saturday, we puttered around the channel island shops, and visited the Ventura County Maritime Museum, which was among the shops.The Museum featured nautical displays, models of historic sailing ships, and a world-class marine art collection. (my favorite part!) They had a special exhibit from a plein air painting competition displayed which was exciting to me because I had just done a similar contest in Galveston, TX earlier in the summer. I really enjoyed looking at the art and I decided I want to enter the competition next summer.

We also learned that you can go whale watching in that area and lately they have had an abnormal number of blue whale sightings! We will definitely go whale watching during the right season.

On Sunday we went to the beach and it was beautiful!
