Saturday I worked the booth in the morning, and then in the afternoon met up with my darling brother again. He and his girlfriend took me to a vegan restaurant that night: Mary’s Secret Garden. They had a selection of raw food dishes, which we all shared. We had their tacos, their sushi, and their strawberry shortcake. Super yummy! (Silly me didn’t take pics..)
The next morning, we went for a walk on the beach. Surprisingly, I thought the beaches at Ventura were prettier than those in Santa Barbara – perhaps because there were less oil rigs wrecking the horizon and less population overall. I loooooooooved basking in the humbling prescence of the ocean, and definitely benefited emotionally and spiritually from spending time near amd in the water.
Overall, it was a nice festival. My honest opinion from a business/vendor standpoint is that the campground idea isn’t the best one. Having it at a campground in the mountains is beautiful, but attracts less people who have lots of money to spend. My vote: have it at a high end resort! My hope is that the next two this year will be better attended – it was quite minimal. Fun, but sparse!
