Ventura Adventure with Pop-Pop

I know I haven't blogged for over a week but I got sick, our air conditioning went out and it was HOT last week! I mean REALLY hot. Like 110 degrees where we live. Seriously, it was hot. So by Friday, Mommy and I had had enough so we went to stay with Pop-Pop and Daddy braved the heat and waited for the repair guy. What a guy, huh!
So on Saturday morning, we decided that it would be fun to go somewhere cooler. So Pop-Pop took us to Ventura. We made our way down to the water to walk around and dip in our toes. Pop-Pop noticed right away that there was something wrong with the water. If you look really close in the upper right hand corner of this photo you can see the red tide. Pop-Pop says it happens when some little organism in the water gets sick and dies. I don't know what that means but it sounds bad so we stayed clear of the water.
So we headed for the pier instead. I slathered on the sun block and got nice and comfy in my stroller. And guess what? It was only 70 degrees. Ahhh, much better!
Here I am checking out the water from the safety of the pier. Neat!
Then we walked over the Main Street to check out the shops and have lunch.
We had lunch at Dargan's Irish Pub and Restaurant, one of Pop-Pop's favorite places. You see, he was principal at a school in Oxnard last year and had to find places to hang out during the summer. So he knew exactly where to go. Mommy and Pop-Pop had yummy salads and I had mac n' cheese, of course.
Pop-Pop took this photo of Mommy and me with his camera phone. We were having a blast!
Pop-Pop even had a Guinness. Cool!
Then it was time to head home. Mommy tried her best to take a photo of this neat sign on our way back to the car. Nice try, Mommy.
Bye, Ventura! And thanks, Pop-Pop, for a fun and cool day!

Looks like you had so much fun in Ventura, one of my favorite places! I'm sure you were a hit on the pier and at Dargan's!
Love you,
