California is officially in lockdown and we can’t adventure as much as we usually do since everything is closed. To be honest being stuck at home is not fun, we love being outside and just finding adventure in new places. However, we are taking social distancing very serious since we do not want to catch the virus. Our Governor has allowed us to take walks around our neighborhood and to be honest Andy and I have been loving our walks. On Sunday, we went on a walk around our area, we loved being outside and it made us miss our adventures. We did take a beautiful walk today and loved how we had some peace and quiet and we weren’t surrounded by so many people.

I am use to Andy going on adventures with me, so when he had to go to work on Saturday I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. To be honest I wanted to wait for Andy and go on an adventure on Sunday, however it’s Super Bowl Sunday and Andy is a big NFL football fan so I knew that was not going to happen. I drove around Oxnard and was not sure where I should or what to do. I stumbled across Seabridge Marina and to be honest I had not been here for a while. This place has completely changed, it was beautiful and peaceful. It was a great place to just spend time by myself.

Today’s adventure is taking us to the Funko Hollywood store. Andy and I have been wanting to visit this store and to be honest we loved it. There were so many life size Funko pops and so much merchandise to buy. Andy loves to collect Funko Pops and he loved seeing all the pops this store had to offer. The best part is there are plenty of exhibits that include Disney, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel, Horror films and DC heroes just to name a few. The exhibits are full of photo ops with great Funko pops and lounge fly merchandise. We weren’t sure what to expect, however we had a blast with all the Funko Pops available.

Today’s adventure is taking you to Santa Clarita Valley, this city has so much to do and see. Andy and I have been living here for about five years and to be honest we didn’t start exploring Santa Clarita Valley until we started this blog a year ago. Santa Clarita is the third largest city in Los Angeles county and it is located 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Santa Clarita has plenty of beautiful views, hiking trails, you are able to get lost in nature and enjoy plenty of history. We always thought there was nothing to do here, however once we started looking for adventure we started to fall in love with the city. Let’s get started and let us show you some places to visit.

Andy and I had planned to begin our adventure with Rancho Camulos Museum, however the museum was closed. Don’t worry it definitely did not ruin our day or stop us from finding a new adventure. We figured why not adventure on highway 126 up to Fillmore since there is so much beautiful scenery. Andy and I always take highway 126 when we drive to visit his parents in Ventura County and we love seeing the all the farm animals and crops, when we pass by. After we finished our adventure we stopped at a place to eat in Valencia, CA. Even though at first it didn’t go as planned we had a great time exploring new places.

It was 1949, when snow last fell in Los Angeles, CA. All of a sudden the day after Thanksgiving it decided to snow around Southern California. Andy and I never imagined waking up to snow on top of our mountains. We woke up and were told to step outside and look at the surprise waiting for us, we went outside and realized our mountains were covered with snow. Now plenty of people in the east coast may be thinking, really you guys are this excited about snow? Ummmm YES we are!! This is Southern California, we hardly get any snow around here. A couple weeks ago it was around 90 degrees so to be able to have winter weather is a plus for us. To be honest, Black Friday was not all that this year a lot of people were driving to the snow. This was definitely a memorable Thanksgiving for people living in Southern California.

Today’s adventure takes us to Channel Island Harbor which is located in Oxnard, CA. Andy and I love going to the beach to relax and enjoy the views and beautiful sunsets. The beach is a great way to forget about your worries and being able to see how beautiful life can be. One of our favorite places to go is Channel Island Harbor since it is not so crowded and it is a great place to enjoy. As stated in our previous post, you always need to find a place where you can get away to find yourself. We all live in a very busy, stressed out and have a fast paced life, there are times we just need to find a place where we can have time to ourselves and just enjoy the moment.

Our next adventure takes us to Glendale Forest Lawn which was an adventure we never expected. I (Jackie) had lived in Glendale, CA for about 15 years and had never really explored Glendale Forest Lawn like we did this past weekend. We thought we set aside about an hour to explore the cemetery, not knowing everything we would find. We kept discovering new places to explore and admire while being there. The architecture, art, sculpture and views that surround this cemetery is just breathtaking. Andy and I have a family friend buried at Glendale Forest Lawn and we have never explored it like we did last week.

Today’s adventure is taking us to a small oceanside city named Carpinteria which is located east of Santa Barbara. We stumbled across Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve by just driving around. We got off the car and loved the scenery we found while walking around Carpinteria Bluffs. We definitely want to return since we do not believe we finished the trail. Andys mom joined us and she loved the views she had of the ocean. Once you get off your car you will see a trail and when you begin to walk the trail, you will have a beautiful view of the ocean. Andy and I will definitely be back since we would like to be able to see when there is a lot more greenery. Lets continue with this beautiful location:
