Memorial Day, and 4th of July weekends



For the second year in a row we traveled in our Newell with other family members up to Ventura, CA to spend Memorial Day weekend at Ventura RV Park on the north side of the town of Ventura. This park is right next to Highway 101 on the east side of the highway. There is a lot of freeway noise, but the park is nice, and walking and/or biking distance from their "Old Town" area. We ended up with 5 families (my son Chris and his family, Chris' inlaws, Ed and Linda, Bea and Michael and kids (Chris' sister-in-law and brother-in-law) and Yvette and her kids (another sister-in-law). The Lakers were in the midst of their championship run at Denver, so a couple of evenings were spent around the outside TV watching with agony as the Lakers won once, and lost once. Elaine and I took a bike ride on the Ojai River Trail up to Ojai and back (around 24 miles round trip) one morning for breakfast.



We went to lunch on Friday with Ed and Linda at Anacapa Brewing Company (ABC) in downtown Ventura.






Our next short Newell trip was over the 4th of July weekend when we traveled all the way to Canyon RV Park along the Santa Ana River near Yorba Linda, CA....almost 15 miles from our home....LOL!! This was also the 2nd year in a row that the same 5 families made this trip. It wasn't quite as hot as last year.




We had a great, relaxing weekend with family.....
