Before I start this post, Steve and I want to thank the hundreds of V&L readers that have left such amazing comments on the post about his artwork! I will be choosing the two winners of the giclees of Steve's art tomorrow evening! Click here to visit the giveaway post.
When we spend time at our home in Oxnard, one of our favorite activities is to explore the other charming cities nearby. Lately, we have been spending a great deal of time in Ojai.
A picture in a magazine inspired Steve's little painting...
One of my favorite bloggers, Kelley at the Polished Pebble, shares stories of her experience renovating her beautiful country home in Ojai.
Last weekend, we spent some time exploring the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. The original inn was designed by Wallace Neff, but the resort has been beautifully renovated and expanded.
There are several outdoor seating areas around raised fireplaces, perfect for those chilly Ojai nights.
Lavender thrives in the temperate climate.
All of these guest rooms has views of the valley in the picture above.
We walked along several gravel pathways during our visit. I love the golden color of the Santa Barbara sandstone wall.
We took one more look at the view before hopping back in the car. For more information about the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa visit their website.
Have you ever visited Ojai? If so, I'd love to hear about your experience. Steve and I are hoping to spend more time in this charming town!
