More Fishing

Jimmy went fishing yet again on a boat called the Erna B out of Channel Islands Sportfishing in Oxnard.  He had a ball and even said that he is done fishing in San Diego.  He said that the crew was nice, helpful and professional.  He caught more than his quota so he was able to pass all of the fish that he caught to the crew and other fisherman on the boat.  He did the full day trip from 7a-4p and can't wait to go again. 

More California Vacation

On Saturday night we went to the Terranea resort for some live music and dinner.


On Sunday, we went out on the boat for Tam's birthday.  She got this idea to borrow this kayak from a friend and we would tow it and then her and I would get in it and paddle to the shore where the terranea resort is for bloody marys.  Too bad there isn't picture evidence of the story I am about to tell you. 

We only had 1 oar and it wasn't even the correct kind.  The kayak flipped us into the ocean twice in deep water and the 2nd time I freaked out.  We were in a kelp bed and the kelp all over my legs was freaking me out.  We got back on the boat then decided to go tubing!  It was fun but I was happier in the boat rather than on the kayak or tube.

Jimmy and Pierre go fishing

Jimmy and Pierre went fishing and there's about a 1/2 dozen pics just like this with Jimmy grinning from ear to ear because he caught fish after fish.  I know him and Pierre had a great time. 

Hanging with Sebastian!

When we got to Cali on our first day of vacation, we got to Tam and Pierre's and took a nice nap, taking in the ocean air.  Both Tam and Pierre had work stuff going on so James and I got to hang with Sebastian.  We went to the park, took some pics at home and really just enjoyed this little buddy.  He is going to be 5 in November and I am so impressed with how thoughtful and loving he is.

Picture bonanza

Here's some random pics from our vacation.  We brought 2 cameras plus each of our cell phones and I can tell you we took 1/2 as many photos as we normally do.  We had a fab vacation and the picture here shows Tito's Salsa, guac and chips before it was devoured!  It was soooo good. 
The first day we arrived, we got to spend some quality time with Sebas!  He is such a sweet little buddy.  In the first 3 years of his life, his nickname was psycho-Sebas but he has definitely out-grown that name.  He was such a trooper and a thoughtful, loving munchkin!
More Titos.  Sunday, was Tam's birthday and we had an adventure on the boat.  This cake was with us the ENTIRE trip and the turbulence definitely got to it. 
We went to the Ventura county fair again and had a great time.  It was $3 before 3pm so it was PACKED.  We only stayed about 5 hours but that gave us time for some awesome shopping at the outlest and a fab meal at wood ranch in camarillo!  LOVED IT!

Pig race

videoJimmy and I have been enjoying our vacation in Socal.  The weather couldn't be better, the shopping has been fab, the food has been fresh and amazing and we are enjoying the company too.  Check out this grainy cell phone video from the Ventura County Fair.  We always enjoy the pig races.  We also saw something called Mutton bustin.  If you haven't seen it, you are missing out.  This is insane- kids ages 3-5 and under 50 pounds, ride a sheep as far as they can and even earn $$ for scholarships!  I so wish I would have video taped this for your viewing pleasure.  It is unlike anything you have ever seen.
