After our lunch in Santa Paula I decided to give James and Kate a little tour of Ojai. We took our photo in front of the Ojai Valley sign, check! Everyone does this. This spot is packed every day of the week!
After a scoop of ice cream and a walk through town we saw this sign and turned in. I love a good foodie adventure for Melissa Good Taste.
As you can see, the grounds and home were stunning.
As you drive through the orange tree studded driveway you dead end into their Tasting Room. It is filled with all sorts of different olive oils as well as balsamic vinegars. Grab a snippet of bread and start sampling!
My favorite flavored oil was lemon. It was drinkable!
And the strawberry and honey balsamic vinegar's were my favorite. They had chocolate and vanilla too! It was just an enjoyable little activity.
James stayed outside but I didn't blame him, it was a beautiful day!
Ojai is pretty special, I don't appreciate it on a daily level. I am usually too busy running to the bank, post office or grocery store to stop and smell the orange blossoms. When giving tours of my new home town it usually reminds me of how lucky I am to live here.
