DAY 122: VENTURA HARBOR BEACHES
Date: Wednesday March 16, 2011
Miles: 2 Miles
Elevation Gain: 50 Feet
Time: 1.5 Hours
Difficulty: It's the beach...
Reward: Dolphins!
Description: Channel Islands Visitor Center, garden, waves & dolphins
Where: Ventura, CA
Directions: From the 101 in Ventura, exit on Seaward and turn left on Harbor.  About a mile up, turn right on Spinnaker and go all the way to the end.  Drive around the cul-de-sac and then start heading back.  Turn right in the very first parking lot.
 We spotted 8 dolphins in the harbor!
...a better camera would have been good today :(

The Beach

From the Visitor Center, there is a very calm beach which is great for little kids.  The break walls for the harbor allow for this.  Then, once clear the next break wall, the ocean comes alive!  Today especially; maybe it was a hangover from the tsunami the other day.
