Ventura around sunset

It's cool but not cold this morning, a midweight fleece keeps me focused. Clouds move steadily overhead. This wonderful view before me makes for a peaceful morning while watching a sleepy downtown Ventura, Calif., begin to buzz with activity. Soon the sun will warm the hills, trees, buildings and r oads of this beach town, as well as Oxnard to the South (left), and Anacapa and Santa Rosa Islands - part of Channel Islands National Park - in the distance.
