I made a 2nd visit to Ventura in April 2007 when I visited Kat (keida84) and she suggested a leisurely day with manicures/pedicures followed by lunch at the Savory Cafe with Kris (taz_mocha) and a little shopping in Ventura. My 3rd visit was in October 2007, Kat and I headed back to the Savory Cafe for lunch and did a little browsing in a couple of furniture and antique stores.

Ventura is a lovely place to spend an afternoon, the Main Street area is filled with unique restaurants and shops, no chains here, which is rather refreshing.

My first visit to Ventura was brief, a small VT meeting in October 2006 at Aloha Steakhouse on a Saturday evening with e-mom Stephanie and Gerry, Kat (keida84) and her husband Paul (lumpmeister). It's always terrific seeing Stephanie and Gerry and this was a perfect place to eat!

If you really want to get the scoop on Ventura, check out Kat's page on Ventura which is much more complete than mine.

    Good to see you met up with Stephanie and Gerry.. Looks like you had a wonderful time with Kit Kat. The Pizza sounds delish. I love visiting old Missions too.
