Loved our visit with brother, Joel, and his dear wife, Nan, who came for dinner back at Kathy's. (Mom called Nan her 4th daughter!)
We thoroughly enjoyed walking the Carpinteria Farmer's Market. Not large in terms of vendors, but gorgeous offerings. California oranges!!
Love California strawberries, especially those from Oxnard/Camarillo!
Never heard of Bacon Avocados! Was told they are very delicious (isn't anything with bacon in the name?!?), creamy, and fewer calories. We were trying NOT to load up, so we didn't try them, but probably should have. At 3/$1.00 quite a bargain compared to $1.00 each for the teeny ones we get in Kansas!
Beautiful FRESH field greens and veggies.
Kathy recommend we eat at a restaurant named Zookers. It was so enjoyable to dine on outside patio.
I LOVED my full-of-flavor scallops and shrimp tostada!!!
And Rich enjoyed his pork tenderloin with fennel and apple slaw. Beautiful, flavorful food!
Can you believe this is a Best Western??? Our room was on the first floor and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside in our little garden, enjoying the surrounding gardens and changing lights on the courtyard fountain.
It was a HOT, 99 degrees, at this beach town, which was unseasonably hot, and about 20 degrees over normal! But this hotel was a great location for what was a VERY busy weekend.
