I stretched my legs for a few minutes on the return drive from San Luis Obispo and visited the Olivas Adobe in Ventura. I noticed the historical marker when I was in Ventura a few weeks ago, and thought I take a look around. The home is located about 5 minutes from Victoria Avenue and the 101 freeway. The 2-story main house has an enclosed courtyard in the rear with an outdoor cooking area. There was a wedding feria about to begin. I thought the grape arbor would be a nice place to an enjoy a summer afternoon (and a very large staghorn fern).
