My Favorite Weekend Getaway Place

Morning fog over the driving range. The view from our room.

Just returned from the Ojai Valley-- a quick hour plus drive NW of LA, near Santa Barbara-- and it was awesome. So relaxing, so beautiful. We stayed at the Ojai Valley Inn, which I would definitely recommend. Pretty Spanish mission style buildings. Nice landscaping. Lots of complimentary fitness classes (yoga, water conditioning, spinning). Good (but very pricey) spa. And golf, tennis and horseback riding, too, if you're into that. A very kid-friendly place to boot. What a treat to have a place like this so close to LA.

The same view, a few hours later.

Lots of lavender, salvia, rosemary and succulents.
