On Easter we decided to drive up to Ojai to hit the hot springs that the internet informed me were fantastic and a must-visit. But because we have some kind of terrible driving far to cool stuff luck lately, the road to the hot springs was fenced off and closed. So we turned around and drove to Ventura and stopped at the beach and watched dolphins frolic around in the ocean instead. I wish I’d had one of the telephoto lenses I’d never had a need for prior to this with me at the time as the dolphins are just tiny black specks in these photos. The ocean was such an amazing green color that almost made up for the hot springs let down. California is full of magical wonders and my urge to explore is quite strong lately.

That being said, does anyone have any other hot springs¬†recommendations? Seems like there are a lot in the desert but hiking for an hour to one does not sound particularly …in my wheelhouse.
