Tonight we have no accommodation booked, as we're not sure how far down the coast we'll get. We're driving the Big Sur, said to be the most scenic coast road in all of America, and hopefully manage to get as far as San Luis Abispo, some three hundred miles or so from San Francisco. Much depends on what we encounter on the way, and how often we stop for the inevitable photo opportunities...!!! On leaving the Buena Vista Motor Inn we have to turn right out of the car park, if I can get the ...
... br> I called the number given and they arranged to send a recovery truck to change the tyre over to the spare. They also found me a local tyre company that had our tyre, which I was to go to when the spare had been fitted. I felt remarkably calm about this. The others had settled at the pool, so I made my way over to the car with a coffee to wait. The phone assistance people said they would get someone to me within the hour.
They were ...
... we spent some time checking out the town during daylight hours and doing a little bit of shopping in the process. A few purchases later, we drove down to the harbour and walked down the wharf. Definitely our LEAST favourite wharf of all the ones we've visited, this one was really stinky and had a highly irritating horn blowing way too regularly, like every 20 seconds or something. No one likes a noisy, smelly wharf, right?! We continued down the scenic Highway 1, ...
... going out this morning to walk the pier, two men were within two feet of my door. Fortunately, they ignored me as I did them. Have not seen the variety of wildlife here, but those birds create a huge racket at all hours. They seem to like to chatter all the time. There is a pool across the street that has children in it all day and as soon as they vacate, it becomes a huge birdbath and gathering place to share ...
... Coast feel to it but very established and populated. Nicely spread out with the coast on one side and the mountains to the other. It has a population of about 76.000 with a considerable Latino contingent. The eucalypts give you an Australian feel but the palm trees remind you that you are in California.Ventura seems to have a more relaxed and comfortable atmosphere than you would imagine to find in LA, we are enjoying the pace and weather here at the moment. It is gorgeous!

clean, quiet, everything you need....updated, nicely appointed (microwave, fridge), roomy.
Looks like just an old school two story motel configuration outside, but when you get in the room, you'll see something altogether different.
The breakfast was a bit of a let down. It's too small for the number of guests, so there was no where to sit and the hot items weren't being replenished.
