Last Sunday I spent the day with old friends in my hometown of Ventura. We walked around downtown to the San Buena Ventura Mission and down to the Ventura Pier and Surfers point.
The 9th and last of the California Missions was founded in 1782 by Junipero Serra. We heard his name a lot in elementary school, growing up that town. The last time I was at the mission was during my senior year at Ventura High School, when my partner in crime Lynn and I decided to take an advanced placement photography class at the Junior College. I still have a photo Lynn took of me sitting on the fountain with my asymmetrical zipper jacket, pegged pants and crimped hair. Getting credits had never been so fun!
