We stayed at a lovely beachfront place in Oxnard, and it was worth every penny.  It's one of the few beach front resorts that is truly on the beach that we could find.  We got a room that overlooked the ocean and it was so great.  We love being at the beach and find it so relaxing.

On our way to Oxnard we stopped in LA and had lunch and beer at Golden Road Brewery, which Matt wanted to check out.  We've bought their beer before.  The food was amazing and my favorite part was probably my dessert... a delicious croissant bread pudding with caramel sauce and fresh whipped cream.  Worth
the splurge!

We then decided to swing by Griffith Park Observatory.  Neither of us had …
