Anacapa Recapped

Yesterday’s trip to one of the Channel Islands was absolutely delightful! It’s one of those things where California has so many wonderful trips, state parks, and hole in the wall joints, yet I never seem to make time for them.  My grandma is completely into planning trips and adventuring out into the unknown.  God love her.  She signed up through the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens, but it would be just as easy to go through Island Packers.  The boat departed from Oxnard around 9:15 and arrived back at shore around 4:30ish.  In between included whale sightings, sea gull encounters (not kidding, there must have been hundreds on that tiny island), a shipwreck site, and a few miles of trails.

Have you taken any fun trips recently?  Any places you think I should put on my list of locations to visit?

  1. Oh my goodness, what a cute grandma outing! Going out to the channel islands is on my bucket list and even my parents got out there before I did, but seeing these pictures makes me want to get my booty out there! Props to you for running up the Mesa, that is a pretty decent incline!

    • YES! You really must make the trip out! Our next plan is Santa Cruz island, which I heard is much more exciting. It was pretty neat because when I was running, I could even spot UCSB in the distance!
