santa paula inn

after the holidays are over, the decorations are put away and the ball has dropped in times square, we like to go on a weekend getaway. this year it took us a little longer but we finally found time to schedule our weekend away. this year we spent a day in ventura, stayed the night in santa paula, then the next day, on to santa barbara. it was a fun little trip with no plans and no time table. i even left my computer at home! (though i did take my ipad mini.)

we stayed at the dog-friendly santa paula inn, a quaint little b&b. with only 14 rooms, it was nice and quiet. nothing like the larger hotels where you have people coming and going at all hours of the night, talking loudly in the hallway and waking weary travelers from a sound sleep.

bailey enjoyed her stay and was on her best behavior.


if you are ever in that neck of the woods, i would recommend this little place. it's off the beaten path for sure, but that's usually where you find the hidden gems.

until we meet again my friends-


  1. That's what we always liked, those little hidden treasures. Bailey looks even smaller on that big bed but adorable as always.

  2. I think these unscheduled getaways are the best and mostes fun and hopefuly you had good weather as well so you could take many pictures for your memory book. In later years you will be glad you did, and so will your family

  3. And a squirrel statue! Get it! Looks so warm there!

  4. Ventura is fun, they even allow us on the beach
