I really needed to switch things up for awhile. Over the last year and a half many of my hikes involved walking out my front door with only a vague notion of what lay ahead. No planning, no driving and most often no camera. This offered a tremendous sense of freedom. On the days I did stick a camera in my pack, the following photos are the result.

Yet another day of short hikes, two in Ventura and one in Oxnard. Summertime is the perfect time for short hikes and cool ocean breezes.
Ventura Botanical Gardens: 3 miles
Emma Wood State Beach: 2 miles
Silver Strand Beach: 2 1/2 miles
Total: 7 1/2 miles
After a much needed sabbatical I am returning to Silent Hiker. Expect new posts in the spring of 2019. In the meantime, please check out my other website, Peaceful Tourist. It’s shiny and fresh and has that new blog smell!
I have decided to retire this blog and move on to other things. I will continue to hike and take photos, and maybe once in a blue moon I’ll post a new entry, just to keep it alive. I wish you all well. May your journeys be safe, fun and fulfilling.
Thanks for reading,
