Yesterday we went with Plan B outing with friends. It wasn't Disneyland (Plan A) but it sure was a nice day!
We leisurely made our way up to Ojai after a tasty pizza lunch. I'd never been to Ojai so enjoyed seeing the area, the green hills, little houses along the main road, nice town area, old-style street signs and all the little boutiques and galleries and shops. We spent a good amount of time in Bart's Books, an outdoor book store with heaps of used and some new books, meandering in and out of the indoor and outdoor areas, browsing the thousands of books. We all managed to find something there, a very eclectic collection.
After a few hours in the town we stopped in Oxnard for a tasty dinner (I'm still full) and a little wine tasting.
Fun, relaxing day! (Very necessary, it will get me through this busy week.)
