Strawberry Fields Forever - Sweetness along the California Coast

The annual Strawberry Festival was nestled in amongst the Eucalyptus trees and acres of farmland in the city of Oxnard away from the busy 101 freeway and the snarled traffic jams.   Thousands of people enjoyed the event, May 21 and 22 in the typical California sunshine and cool ocean breezes. Live music, children’s entertainment, arts and crafts and lots of booths offered a variety of food that kept the crowds busy. The strawberry festival is a celebration of the beautiful strawberries grown in the city Oxnard and surrounding areas, 60 miles north of Hollywood. With everything coming up strawberries one didn’t have to go very far to find their favorite strawberry desert or drink.    Just how many ways can one eat or drink strawberries?  Read more here at The Real Hollywood , 

The City of Malibu - Stately Mansions Behind Those Brick Walls

The Spanish hacienda built in the ’20s was originally the beach home of the first family of Malibu—Merritt Huntley Adamson and his wife Rhoda Rindge Adamson.

Thursday Thirteen - Thirteen Things to Ask at a Ghost Hunt

About Sarah, They’re Coming for You! Restless spirits of the dead torment the living for many reasons. But the dark hunters seek one thing. It is not God’s blessing, but a soul for eternity. For years, Sarah was tormented by these seekers. Each passing year they gained strength. Guided by her great great grandfather Hermann-who intercedes on her behalf-Sarah had faith, but now, she feels her faith in Hermann is slipping, and she grows spiritually weaker. When a mysterious woman—a link from the past—enlightens Sarah of her journey everything falls into place. Sarah has a connection between her ancestral family and her own haunting from the rogue ghosts in the afterlife. They seek her in order to claim two family members with a single soul. One thing left to do for Sarah. Go to the family home in Austria and face the ghosts head on, or lose her soul forever.

Outdoor Fun on the Southwest Gulf of Florida by Linda Ballou - Featured in Real Travel Adventures

My very good friend, travel writer and author, Linda Ballou is featured the month of May in the online travel magazine Real Travel Adventures. A three-mile causeway from Fort Meyers across San Carlos Bay to the barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva takes you back to a gentler time. People seem to move slower here where there are no stop signs, no street lights, and no structures over three stories. The year-round population of about 6,200 souls bulges to 20,000 in winter when snowbirds of all stripes migrate here from the frozen North. Twenty-five miles of biking trails along with a 100-mile kayaking trail called the Great Calusa Blueway, the best shelling in the world, and opportunities for sport fishing make this a great getaway for those who love the outdoors.
