When we left Rancho Oso we went down to the beach where we were parked for two days.
The tide was up when we arrived so we couldn’t swim in the waves, but as it got later the waves got better. I decided to go swimming. I just dove right in even though it was cold. Once I got my head wet I ran out of the water. Everyone thought I should go back in, so I did. The water was actually a little warmer, but that is probably because my legs were already numb. After I dried off we drove to Neptunes Net, one of the best seafood places ever (even one of my favorite restaurants , the one who doesn’t like seafood). We went home when we finished and that night I fell asleep listening to the waves lapping at the beach.
The next morning I woke up and looked out my window. There was the beach! I jumped out of bed and went down to the beach.
Marcus and I played down on the beach for about an hour and then we drove to the Channel Islands visitor center. We learned about the Channel Islands and did the junior ranger program. We didn’t actually go to the Channel Islands because we would have had to plan a trip, but we could see them right from our camper.
We went home and played on the beach for the rest of the day. The next day we had to leave. In the morning Marcus and I played on the beach and then it was time to go. I had loved camping on the beach, but I was glad to go back to Acton to see our friends. -Cali
I just wanted to add that the place we stayed was called Emma Woods State Beach. The are several places to stay along the ocean in Ventura, but this is our favorite. There are no hook ups, but who notices when you have ocean breezes and such a great view. We payed $40 a night plus $10 for the extra car. Not cheap, but well worth it in our opinion. Connie
