Watch the sunset at Emma Wood State Beach Ventura California

Tuesday, February 11, 2020
Emma Wood State Beach is one of my favorite beaches for day trips. It's quite lovely and peaceful compared to the more crowded beaches further down South, and in that way it could be considered a more hidden gem. The sand is nice, there are quite a few logs to climb along. Secluded beach you can primarily focus on the ocean horizon and the waves crashing into the shoreline.

Perfect to explore and certainly a great place for taking your dog on a walk. Dog owners we came across were respectful. They were thoughtful enough to use a leash while we cross paths. If you are into camping, they do have a camp site within walking distance.

By 5:30 and up we watched the most glorious spectacular sunset with waves pounding against the surf-wall.

The view is spectacular. You will see dolphins and whales most every morning and at dusk. This amazing State beach park is less than 15 mins drive out from our house. You get a slice of beautiful beach all to yourself that only the keenest seeker of solitude would grumble about.

REALLY is  a gem on the California coast.


Happiness comes in saltwater and sunsets.

My little one relaxing at my arms while enjoying the fresh ocean breeze and sunset.


I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today!

  17. I love the sea and the beach. This is the best time of year to go as it isn't high season so you have the beach all to yourself but at the same time it's nice and warm.
