Mountains to beaches



Driling away! Audrey, Doug, me, Sarah,Tim and Sarah
There's a nice bike path that we took from Ojai down to the beach. The scenery was beautiful, then we hit the oil dirlling machines in East Ventura in an area known as the "Avenues". Then we headed down to Ventura beach. Beautiful day for a down hill bike ride down to the beach.

Ojai, California


We've left Redlands and headed up to Ojai. This is my first time in Ojai, it's really beautiful. The mountains here remind me of the Wasatch mountains in Utah. Except it is much greener here. I'll try to get a better picture in the next few days.

Redlands Host family


We spent the last week in Redlands with our super hosts the Chow's and the Lui's. They treated us to great home cooked gourmet meals every night. On our last night we headed out to the Olive Garden. Then we were treated to "Boba" drinks. Yummy! Here we are with our team, staff, and host family. Left to right....Me, Tim, Serena, Doug, Sarah, Tina, Anita and Brooke.
