Faria Beach Park in Ventura, CA.

Faria Beach Park in Ventura, CA. was a place that mom, dad and I (Gracie Girl) went to before Bobo was adopted into our family. 

It is located next to the Rincon, between the beautiful Pacific Ocean and the base of the Santa Ynez mountains along Highway 1 off the Ventura Freeway. 
It offers spectacular views up the coast towards Santa Barbara and of the breathtaking Channel Islands, which are most notable at dusk.
We got a really great spot, right next to the steps which led us down to the beach. That is where I spent most of my time swimming and splashing in the waves. It was awesome.
When mom, dad and I weren't down on the beach playing and swimming, we spent time watching the local sea birds swooping by. 
We even caught a glimpse of several Porpoises and California Sea Lions.
In the early evening hours we all enjoyed gazing out at the horizon taking in the most beautiful sunset.
We also spent some time nearby in Downtown Ventura walking around window shopping and stopping for a bite to eat.

Faria Beach Park is a lovely beach camping destination.  Tent and RV sites are available, some with full-hookups. Restrooms and showers are also on hand. Make sure that your parents keep in mind that the campsites are highly sought after and are on a first come, first serve basis.  They do not accept reservations, so an optimal time to go would be during the week.
