I can drive from
and begin hiking the
trails at Arroyo Verde Park. I sometimes
take an easy loop around the park, a wideopen grassy area. There are always people
here walking their dogs and families
playing. There's a canyon walk, nice and
shaded with big trees. Or, I'll hike to the
top of the mountain. In the spring, the
poppies were in full bloom.
The first time I
ever tried paddle
boarding at Ventura
Harbor, I was a little nervous about falling.
But once I got up on the board and
started paddling, it was surprisingly easy.
We glided through the Ventura Keys, past
the beautiful homes and boats on the
water. The water was a gorgeous, glassy
green color, and clear enough to see
schools of fish and a manta ray swimming
below us. (And I didn't fall a single time!)

picturesque and the weather near-perfect,
but the Ventura community is very active.
It makes you want to be outdoors and
