Rain boots… for sea glass hunting. Best investment ever! $19.99+ tax at Deckers on Main Street. Sizes and colors are very limited and all sales are final… Spent a couple hours with teebird415 hunting for sea thingies. We had so much fun walking through the water and trudging through the wet sand. Felt like a little kid again 🙂 #ugg #uggoutlet #hokaoneone #hoka #teva #sanuk #deckers #deckersretail #ventura #venturacounty #california #rainboots #boots #seaglassboots #shoefie #beaching #beachday #beachlife #beachtherapy #beachcombing #beachcomber #vitaminsea #surfersknoll #vccoutdoors #optoutside

That moment when you're so excited to find a new spot to beach comb at and you're visualizing that marble because you know it's out there somewhere waiting just for you and almost miss this. I thought it was a piece of plastic at first. My first red piece! Looks like Slimer's cousin. #smile #red #glass #beachglass #seaglass #beachday #beachlife #beachfinds #ventura #venturabeach #venturalife #venturacounty #vcclife #vccoutdoors #surfersknoll #california #optoutside

Find the critters! I unintentionally got this shot of a man with his best friend the other night taking a photo of this cool teepee… Today is a summery 75 degrees but feels a lot warmer than that. I guess summer is here early. And we'll be getting an extra hour of daylight beginning Sunday! Don't forget to spring forward an hour on Saturday night. #venturabeach #surfersknoll #channelislands #anacapa #santacruz #ventura #venturacounty #beaches #beachtherapy #vitaminsea #therapy #vcclife #mansbestfriend #dogsrule #california #vccoutdoors #ventureout #optoutside

Happy FriYAY!! Take advantage of our great weather, get out there, explore, and get some vitamin D! If you're heading to Ventura Beach this weekend though, you might want to put some Vicks under your noses (dredging is in progress and it's really stinky near Surfer's Knoll). Rain boots are from Deckers Retail Ventura. Great for rainy days and sea glass hunting. $20! #surfersknoll #venturabeach #ventura #venturalife #venturacounty #california #love #heart #heartrock #loverock #beachfind #beachlife #rainboots #deckersretail #ugg #therapy #beachtherapy #vitaminD #vitaminsea #beachcombing #beachcomber #vccoutdoors #ventureout #optoutside

Flash back to last summer but I’m pretty sure that you’ll see these guys out and about today and this weekend since our weather’s been super hot and breezy. #surf #surfers #surfing #kitesurf #foilsurf #watersports #windsports #extremesports #surferspoint #ventura #venturabeach #805 #venturacounty #vccoutdoors #vcclife #beachlife #visitventura #california #optoutside #fbf

FriYAY!!… If you're in the 805 this weekend, there'll be plenty to do, see, and taste. With this heatwave, I'm sure our beaches will be very busy… But if the beach is not your thing, the 34th California Strawberry Festival will be in Oxnard Saturday and Sunday. Surf 'n' Suds Beerfest will be happening here on the promenade on Saturday. And on Sunday, Chasing Tail Fishing Crew will be putting on a free fishing clinic for kids from 8 AM until noon on the pier. (There's a pretty good chance that you'll see some sharks out here too.) Or check out these awesome cairns created by juanmanuelcg800!! Amazing! And don't forget to pick up some deliciousness from Beach House Tacos too! Their grilled shrimp tacos are on my Best Thing I Ever Ate list and HUGE! Have a great weekend!! #ventura #venturalife #venturapier #woodenpier #rocks #stacks #cairns #balance #venturabeach #beachlife #beachcity #visitventura #vitaminsea #venturacounty #805 #vccoutdoors #socal #california #visitcalifornia #optoutside

Ventura Harbor. Off to the right is the future home of a 64 unit boutique hotel. The lot isn’t all that big so I’m guessing it’ll be going up a few stories. #ventura #beach #harbor #venturaharbor #marinapark #beachlife #beachday #beachtherapy #vitaminsea #saltylife #venturacounty #805 #vccoutdoors #twotrees #green #socal #california #optoutside
