31ST JANUARY 2011 -  We leave Cayuco and drove to Santa Barbara.  We then decide to keep going and we want to find Walmart.  We gotta see what Walmart is like.  

We got to Walmart in Oxnard and well you need a GPS system to work out where to go. Its huge! It sells heaps of cheap stuff like TV's (Troy couldn't believe how cheap the plasma tellies are), clothes, manchester, paint, plants, supermarket and heaps more.  Its like a huge Big W or Kmart but on steroids -- the only thing Walmart has going for it that Big W and Kmart don't have going for it is that is Walmart you can buy GUNS!  Yes guns, real ones!! (see photo).  Unbelievable and as they say 'only in the USA'!  We buy some lunch -- salads, strawberries, bread, cake and drinks. We pay at one of 30 cash registers.  Well we had to see Walmart for ourselves and must say it was a bit of a waste of time ha ha!! We leave Walmart and Troy decides he wants something at McDonalds so we have a bit of chicken. I was happy to have my healthy lunch but no Troy been a bad influence (naughty boy) I have nuggets and he has a burger. Then Troy spots Dairy Queen and yes we had icecream. So there goes my idea of a healthy lunch so it will be a healthy dinner.  

We decide to stay the night in Ventura, another coastal town just out 45 minutes drive out of LA.

We pull up at this motel and check in.  Cheap!  $66 (inc tax) so that is a bargain.  Its clean and comfortable and close to the Ventura beach.  Cool!  We settle in our room and go for a walk to the beach.  We write Renee in the sand and then go for a drive around here.  We drove to Surfer's Point which is another cool beach. We see the sunset at the Ventura Pier and then we head back to our back to our room, repack our bags and throw out whatever we don't want to keep.  We eat our salads and cake for dinner and thats it for the night. 

1 FEBRUARY 2011 - We check out mid morning after a healthy (not) continental breakfast of waffles and fake maple syrup and coffee (haven't drank coffee for 4 years). We drive to LA to drop off the car and then head to LAX airport for our flight to HAWAII!!!!  

Oh yeah did I tell you I have taken just over 22,000 photos.  Yippeee I told you I should be a photographer.  I love it!
