The artist is a Mother first...

Bonjour all! Sorry for the lacking of painting... and lack visiting last week... some times I have to be a MOM... things look to be back on track this week... sooooo I am hoping to get back to painting this week... for today... I give you one of my favorite places to getaway... Ventura Beach, California... At the Crowne Plaza EVERY room has a view of the ocean...
Cheerful remodel of one of their restaurants... love breakfast here...
and this is one part of the hotel I have yet to see remodeled... I NEED a trip... to see this new lounge...
pool by the ocean looks the same in this photo...
oooh and they have a FAB banquet room on the top floor with a spectacular view...
and you can get married on the beach in front of the hotel too before having the reception with a view...
I hope you enjoyed this little virtual beach getaway... and if you get a chance book a room... as soon as I get a chance that's what I plan on doing... I must see all the remodel transformations in person! Ooooh and within walking distance there is a WONDERFUL downtown with lots of restaurants and shopping!
Nowwwwwwwww... time to visit more BLUE posts via Blue Monday posts over at Smiling Sal's and METAMORPHOSIS posts via Metamorphosis Monday posts over at Susan's.

We just stayed at the Crown Plaza not to long ago. I like the location. It's so easy to walk downtown from the hotel.

Happy Blue Monday!
